Lyon director Juninho confirms Man City interest in Arsenal target Aouar

Lyon director Juninho has confirmed Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is interested in Houssem Aouar.

Both Arsenal and City are vying for the midfielder, with Juninho having confirmed Lyon rejected an offer from the Gunners which included Matteo Guendouzi.

He told RMC Sport: “I think that has been happening directly with agents. We were not directly contacted. Maybe Vincent Ponsot [director general] was contacted by Manchester City, I am not sure.

“It is like that with these two teams, two enormous teams who play to win the Champions League every year, they have the capacity for that and that makes any player dream. I don’t know if Houssem is ready to change project for a big Ligue 1 team like PSG.

“For City, of course Guardiola likes the player, but is that the profile that they are looking for today? We don’t know that either and we have not received any official offers.”
