Houssem Aouar is staying at Lyon for at least one more season.

The Ligue 1 outfit ended negotiations with Arsenal over a potential transfer because the Gunners refused to improve their bid to €50 million, according to The Guardian's Fabrizio Romano.

Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain expressed interest in signing Aouar as well, RMC Sport's Mohamed Bouhafsi reports.

However, neither club pushed to complete a deal.

Arsenal's offer for Aouar 'too far from his value,' says Lyon president

  Arsenal's offer for Aouar 'too far from his value,' says Lyon president Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed Arsenal made an approach for 22-year-old playmaker Houssem Aouar but indicated an offer - reportedly worth €35 million - has been rejected. "For Houssem Arsenal is too far from his value," Aulas said Sunday on Twitter, as translated by The Guardian's Nick Ames. "We are counting on him to play a great match in Lorient (on Sunday) and lead OL (Lyon) in the CL (Champions League) in the next year."

"We are counting on him to play a great match in Lorient (on Sunday) and lead OL (Lyon) in the CL (Champions League) in the next year.

It's my club - Aouar happy to stay at Lyon despite Arsenal links.

Lyon star Houssem Aouar explained his decision to snub interest from across Europe, insisting he has unfinished business at the Ligue 1 club. Aouar was tipped to join Premier League side Arsenal , while the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus , Manchester City and Real Madrid were also linked.

Arsenal were reportedly prepared to increase their bid from the €35 million that was initially rejected, but the north London side was unwilling to meet Lyon's asking price.

Lyon also turned down an offer involving Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi in recent weeks.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas lowered his demands from €60 million due to the economic downturn during the coronavirus pandemic.

Arsenal will now try to sign Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, according to ESPN's Julien Laurens. They could also revive efforts to sign Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey but may face more resistance from the Spanish side. Atletico reportedly insist Arsenal pay Partey's €50-million release clause.
