Lyon chief Juninho has admitted that the French side will listen to offers for Arsenal target, Houssem Aouar, this summer as he continues to develop well.
The 22-year-old has been consistently improving his performances over the past two seasons and he will certainly play for a big club in a few years’ time.
The midfielder starred yet again as Lyon eliminated Juventus from the Champions League to reach the quarter-finals.
He has been linked with a move to Arsenal, and the Gunners are being rivalled by Manchester City for his signature in England.
Juventus is another team that wants to sign him and the Mail Online claims that the youngster is valued at £44 million by the French side.
Arsenal has had a good relationship with Lyon for a very long time, and the Gunners signed Alexandre Lacazette from them.
Speaking on a number of issues recently, Juninho was asked about the future of Aouar, and he admitted that great players will always be signed by teams who have more money and that they are prepared to sell him.
The Lyon chief told RMC Sport via Mail Online: ‘Houssem Aouar? When you have great players in the squad, it is quite logical that other bigger teams with greater economic power come to seek the players.
‘There is a risk of losing important players. If we lose important players, I have already spoken with the president, we will have the right to balance the workforce.’
