Arsenal threaten Man City plans for Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar

Arsenal have joined the interest in Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.

Le 10 Sport says the Gunners have scouted Aouar regularly this season and have made contact with the player's minders.

While no offer will be made this month, Aouar has been assured by Arsenal reps they plan to move for him this summer.

Arsenal made the approach knowing Aouar is also wanted by Manchester City.

A key factor in the battle could be Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette, who is close to his former OL teammate.
