​Nottingham Forest close to signing Lyon midfielder Aouar

Lyon midfielder and long-time Arsenal target Houssem Aouar is set to sign for Nottingham Forest.

The newly promoted Premier League club, who defeated West Ham United on Sunday, are set to secure the playmaker from the Ligue 1 side.

Sky Italy reports that Aouar is very close to signing with Forest, having been linked with a Premier League move for several years.

He was a long-term Arsenal target, but the club chose not to move for him this summer.

The Nottingham-based club are also close to securing Neal Maupay from Brighton.
