Arsenal tipped to reignite transfer battle with Inter Milan for French midfielder next summer

Arsenal have been linked with a move for French midfielder Houssem Aouar next summer.

Aouar’s stock has been on the rise for the past couple of years and the Olympique Lyonnaise star has seen his name dominate headlines in recent transfer windows with an array of big clubs tipped to be potential destinations.

Arsenal are among those clubs who have always shown an interest in Aouar and their most recent attempt to bring the Frenchman to the Emirates was unsuccessful as they couldn’t afford to meet Lyon’s demands for the player.

Reports now emanating from the Italian media suggests that Arsenal could be in for the midfielder once again when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

Sport Witness makes reference to a report by Calciomercarto that says Inter Milan and Juventus are interested in making a move for Aouar. The Italian media outlet goes ahead to add Arsenal to the list of clubs interested in the midfielder and they suggest that a transfer battle could be on the cards next summer.

Aouar has just less than 18 months left on his contract and there are reportedly no signs of him signing an extension which means his transfer fee would drop significantly in the upcoming window. More so, the midfield star is said to have changed agents and he’s now represented by IMC Stellar Sports, a choice that the reports suggest would propel him ‘towards a new adventure’ next season.
