Liverpool 'in pole position' to sign Houssem Aouar but Lyon up price for Arsenal target

Liverpool are reportedly the club most likely to sign Houssem Aouar this summer. However, Lyon have now upped their asking price for the French midfielder. Aouar was a top target for Arsenal last summer but the Gunners were unable to get a deal over the line.

Arsenal have again been linked with the 23-year-old as Mikel Arteta aims to rebuild his struggling squad.

However, it appears unlikely Arsenal will have a free run at signing Aouar.

Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United have all been named as clubs interested in signing the Lyon star.

ESPN claimed last week that Spurs had offered Tanguy Ndombele to Lyon in an attempt to sign Aouar.

However, after seeing that bid rebuffed, the Gunners are currently not willing to re-enter negotiations.

Meanwhile, the report says Spurs will only look to sign Aouar if they sell Harry Kane this summer.

Tottenham will aim to bring in a couple of attacking players, as well as creative midfielder like Aouar, if Kane were to leave.

United are in a similar position, where they will only go in for Aouar if they lose Paul Pogba.

Pogba has entered the final year of his contract at Old Trafford and has reportedly emerged as a top target for Paris Saint-Germain.
