Chelsea have reportedly joined Arsenal and Barcelona in the race to sign highly-rated Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, according to The Daily Mail.
The 20-year-old attacker, who refused to join Liverpool as a teen, has emerged as an ideal target for a number of European clubs since breaking into Lyon’s first-team ranks at the start of last season.
Arsenal are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon, reports Daily Star.
The report claims that a deal worth more than £60m for the Frenchman is “almost on the cards” paving the way for Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to leave the Emirates next year.
With Manchester United keen on signing Mesut Ozil and Manchester City target Alexi Sanchez could now be allowed to leave the north London in the new year with the Gunners confident of securing Fekir’s signature.
