Juventus keen to beat Arsenal to Houssem Aouar?

Juventus are reportedly keen to edge out Arsenal in the race to sign Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.

The Gunners were heavily linked with a move for the France international during the summer transfer window but were unable to get a deal over the line due to Lyon’s asking price.

The North London outfit retain an interest in the 22-year-old playmaker, but Tuttosport reports that the Italian champions Juventus are now at the head of the queue for his signature.

The Old Lady are now contemplating a January swoop for the Frenchman, who recently insisted that he was happy to stay at Les Gones despite rumours linking him with a move away from the Ligue 1 outfit.

Aouar has contributed 25 goals and 27 assists in 142 appearances for Lyon.
