Houssem Aouar is reportedly being watched by Arsenal amid interest from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool, the Daily Mail reports
A high-energy midfielder who is excellent on the ball, Aouar has been considered by Arsenal as someone who could replace the likes of Aaron Ramsey.
Aouar, 20, has scored five league goals this season and has caught the eye with his performances so far. Aouar was nominated for the 2018 Golden Boy award.
He is a technically gifted ace that can play anywhere across the midfield and is the latest rising star to come out of the highly successful Lyon academy.
The France Under-21 international is the type of player missing from the ranks at the Emirate Stadium right now and Arsenal interest makes perfect sense.
His style, he is equally proficient in the No 10 or No 8, has been likened to Philippe Coutinho as he can also play on the left of midfield and has scored five goals this season.
Aouar, who is valued at £30 million by Lyon, is believed to be the man Emery wants to fill the Ramsey role in his midfield.
Lyon are refusing to sell in January, meaning a summer move is more likely, Barcelona are said to be keeping a close eye on the player who is very highly rated in Ligue 1.
