Lyon president Aulas: Aouar price too much for Arsenal

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has again stated Arsenal's attempts to sign Houssem Aouar are falling short.

Aulas claims Arsenal are nowhere near offering enough to sign midfielder Aouar. Reports on Friday claimed Aouar had agreed to join Arsenal this summer and that the Gunners had submitted an offer of just under £32million for the 22-year-old.

However, Lyon president Aulas has tweeted that he expects Aouar to play against Lorient on Sunday and be a part of the club's squad this season.

Responding to an article claiming Aouar had chosen to join Arsenal, Aulas wrote off his personal Twitter account: "@OL there will be very few departures: for Houssem Arsenal is much too far from his value: we count on him to make a big game in Lorient and lead OL in CL next year."
