Arsenal in pole position to sign in-demand star wanted by City and Liverpool

Lyon star Houssem Aouar has stirred up interests in the Gunners camp. Aouar has been racking up interests across Europe, especially in the Premier League.

Manchester City and Liverpool are known to have registered their interests in the star.

The Sun however, is reporting that the north London are keen on landing the star.

Aouar broke out with sterling deliveries this term, winning attention from a host of clubs ahead of the January transfer window.

The Lyon star has stamped his mark as one of the highly-rated players in the French club this campaign.

He has had club’s swooning over his performance and Arsenal are not exception.

The Gunners are prepared to lose Welshman Aaron Ramsey when the year turns over and Unai Emery is keen to spread his options and increase the depth of the squad in January.

Ramsey is pivotal to Arsenal though, haggling a better deal for the midfielder has been a bummer and the Gunners have decided to axe their hold on him.

Arsenal want to walk into an agreement to sign Aouar who has been hugely touted as the Welshman’s replacement.

The Gunners running for the midfielder might pay off well in the end given their cordial relationship with Lyon when they brought in Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette last season. It could help them beat off the competition.
