Arsenal-linked Aouar provides update on his future

The L’Équipe journalist asked Aouar if it's hard knowing he could leave Lyon without saying goodbye to a full stadium of fans?

"I haven’t left yet," he answered. "So I haven’t asked this question."

The 22-year-old was then asked if leaving Lyon could affect his chances of making the France squad ahead of next summer's postponed Euro 2020. But the midfielder's answer was the same.

"I haven’t left yet!" He replied.

The reporter then made another attempt asking Houssem what are his plans.

"That one is very tough (laughs). I want us to start the league well. And that we beat Dijon, to start with."

Aouar's output last season

Judging by the manner of his replies, he's ready to move on but nothing is decided yet.

As reported earlier by L'Equipe, Arsenal were the only club to launch a formal offer for the creative midfielder.

ESPN then reported that Edu and Lyon chief Juninho were set to hold another round of talks over Aouar move denying that the transfer price had been discussed during the preliminary meeting.

 As per various reports, Manchester City, Juventus and PSG are also considering a move for the talented midfielder.
