Arsenal rival PSG, Juventus for the 22-year-old Frenchman

Arsenal are reportedly ready to rival Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus for Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.

The Gunners were strongly linked with the 22-year-old playmaker during the summer but were unable to get a deal over the line.

The France international ultimately remained with Les Gones, but the speculation surrounding his future is now gathering pace, with a report suggesting that Arsenal could make a mid-season move.

According to Tuttosport, the North Londoners are planning another swoop for the Frenchman, but PSG and Juve are also firmly in the race for his services.

However, Juventus believe that they are in a strong position when it comes to negotiations with the Ligue 1 outfit due to their close relationship with Les Gones.

Aouar has netted once in five league appearances for Lyon this season.
