Lyon president Aulas calm over Arsenal, Man City push for Aouar

Olympique Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas is confident of keeping hold of Houssem Aouar.

Manchester City have asked OL to name their price for the midfielder, while Liverpool are also in contact and Arsenal made an approach this week.

But Aulas says: "I saw him beaming with his mom. He gave a very beautiful image of France. He must express his immense talent.

"If Didier Deschamps wants to block him in relation to the Algerian selection, he can do it.

"I'm happy for him because he's a pure talent coming from the Academy. I really want him to succeed to the end regardless of his national team direction and he remains at OL."
