  Lyon president Aulas claims Arsenal reluctant to meet Aouar's price The French midfielder played a pivotal role in Lyon's run to the Champions League semi-finals last season and has attracted heavy interest from Mikel Arteta and the Gunners as a result.

Aouar, a France Under 21 international, has spent his entire career to date at Lyon, making over 130 appearances for the club.

Arsenal have rebuffed approaches from Atletico Madrid and Torino to take Lucas Torreira on loan. Arsenal want to sell the midfielder and retain an interest in Atletico's Thomas Partey.
