Tottenham have targeted Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, according to journalist Alexis Bernard (via Spurs Web).
The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with the move to the Emirates Stadium last year, while the Gunners haven’t yet cooled down their interest in the French professional.
Now, as the journalist claims, Spurs have joined the race and have prepared more money than Mikel Arteta’s side for Lyon star’s possible move.
Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has raved about Aouar following a clash between City and Lyon in the Champions League in August last year.
He told Manchester Evening News: “Lyon have a great team. I don’t follow the French league as much as other leagues, but if I have to pick one player that has impressed me from Lyon, it would be Houssem Aouar.
“He was fantastic.”
