REVEALED: Arsenal identify Man City target Aouar as Ramsey successor

Arsenal have jumped into the battle for Olympique Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.

L'Equipe says Arsenal have asked OL about a price for the youngster, who they see as a replacement for departing Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

Arsenal have made it clear to OL they will be in for Aouar next month.

It was revealed over the weekend that City jumped straight into negotiations with OL for the midfielder after last week's Champions League draw.

City No2 Mikel Arteta was won over by Aouar on the night and City immediately asked OL for a price for the playmaker.

Liverpool are also in contact with Aulas, having requested to be kept up to speed on Aouar's potential availability.
