According to Spanish outlet Todofichajes, Arsenal are ready to beat Juventus to the acquisition of Olympique Lyonnais player Houssem Aouar (via Juvefc.com).
Arsenal and Juventus have been after Houssem Aouar for a long time. Last season, the Gunners were unable to get the services of the 22-year-old French international, but are hoping to do so this season.
The Frenchman is available for €35 million, according to the aforementioned source, which is €7 million less than the market value as reported by Transfermarkt.com. Olympique Lyonnais is in a financial bind right now and is looking to cash in on their star player to help them get back on track.
