Juventus are supposedly leading the race to sign Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, who was linked with a move to Arsenal all throughout the summer.
Juventus have actually supposedly taken a march on Arsenal in the race to sign extremely-rated Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
The Gunners tried to land the France international during the most recent transfer window, however after stopping working to hand over Lyon’s asking price for Aouar, Arsenal decided to sign Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid rather.
Arsenal continue to be credited with an interest in Aouar, however it appears that the Gunners will need to win a stiff fight with Serie A powerhouses Juventus in order to get a deal over the line.
According to Calciomercato, Juve manager Andrea Pirlo has taken a preference to Aouar, and the Serie A champions want to hand over ₤ 50m to land the 22-year-old next year.
The report declares that the Old woman are considering a two-year loan deal with a responsibility to purchase, however Juventus will accommodate Lyon’s needs and are prepared to table a concrete offer if the French giants decline that loan proposition.
Aouar supposedly landed himself in warm water with Lyon after declining to participate in a warm-down session after last weekend’s win over Angers, and the midfielder did not make Rudi Garcia‘s squad for Sunday’s face-off with Reims.
