The dynamic 22-year-old has already made near 150 appearances for Lyon and performed a key position as Rudi Garcia’s facet reached the Champions League semi-finals final season.
If Aouar does find yourself becoming a member of the membership, he will probably be welcomed with open arms by Aubameyang who lavished him with reward throughout a current interview.

Arsenal have already submitted a £32m huge for Aouar, which was shortly rebuffed by OL president Jean-Michel Aulas, who values the midfielder far increased. In keeping with French journalist Olivier Tallaron, Lyon are set to demand between €40m and €50m.
