Premier League rivals will not allow Arsenal to have a free run at signing Frenchman

Arsenal remains in the lead in the race for Houssem Aouar, but they are not having it easy.

The Gunners have been long-term admirers of the Lyon man whom they tried to sign last summer.

The transfer fell through, however, they have maintained their interest and have returned strongly for him in this transfer window.

Lyon wants to cash in on him now that he has just two more seasons left on his current deal at the club.

However, the Gunners are facing competition from the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United, according to ESPN.

Liverpool doesn’t have the best of relationship with Lyon after the Nabil Fekir transfer fell through in 2018.

Man United considers him a good target to replace Paul Pogba, who looks to be heading out of Old Trafford.

Tottenham is reportedly the biggest competition that Arsenal has now and the Lilywhites have a good relationship with Lyon having signed Tanguy Ndombele from them in 2019.

Both players enjoyed a blossoming midfield partnership at the French club before Ndombele left them.

Spurs now want to reunite them in London and that could be a problem for Arsenal.

The Gunners wants to sign him for 20m euros, but Lyon wants 25m euros.

    What’s there that Arteta can not execute now?? 20 and 25, what’s the difference? Just go for him before Tottenham draw closer too much. I would like to see this guy at Emirates stadium this season.

      Spending kronkie’s money like it’s water eh J Krown7?
      Last time I checked, 5 million (be it pounds or euros) is an awful lot of money, so let’s be a little less gung-ho.
      Lest we forget, the player seemed to turn his nose up about joining us last season.

    Who’s behind the campaign to sell this player to Arsenal?
    He’s an average player not for Arsenal standard.
    I hope Arsenal won’t fall in this trap again.
