Arsenal have made an offer for Lyon playmaker Houssem Aouar.
That is according to reports in France, which suggest that the Gunners are back in the market for a player they were linked with for much of last summer.
The Frenchman earlier this week, was forced ot issue a statement denying that he was trying to force his way out of the French club after failing tio turn up for pre-season training, explaining that he was hospitalised over the weekend after falling ill.
Lyon value the player between €20 and €25 million (“17 to £21 million), who has two years left on his current contract wit the Ligue I side.
The Gunners had hoped to sign Martin Ødegaard on a perment deal this summer, but it has now been confirmed he will be staying with his parent club Real Madrid.
