Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have been linked with Houssem Aouar.

According to The Liverpool Echo, Liverpool are interested in signing Houssem Aouar from Lyon in the summer transfer window.

The report has claimed that the 21-year-old midfielder is one of the players on the radar of Liverpool.

Competition

However, Liverpool are likely to face competition for the France Under-21 international midfielder if they make a move for the youngster this summer.

According to The Daily Mail, Arsenal want to bring the talented and promising midfielder to the Emirates Stadium for the 2020-21 campaign and beyond.

Turning down Liverpool

This is not the first time that Liverpool have been linked with Lyon midfielder Aouar.

In January 2019, the midfielder told The Mirror that back in 2016 Liverpool were interested in him before he signed his first professional contract with Lyon.

Stats

According to WhoScored, Aouar has made 23 starts and two substitute appearances in Ligue 1 for Lyon so far this season, scoring three goals and providing four assists in the process.

The midfielder also scored one goal and provided three assists in five Champions League games for the French club this campaign, according to WhoScored.
