A report claims that Lyon's £65m-rated midfielder Houssem Aouar is wanted by a trio of Premier League clubs.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City have all reportedly stepped up their efforts to snap up Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
The 21-year-old has long been linked with a switch to the Premier League following impressive displays for Lyon in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.
A move away from the Groupama Stadium failed to materialise last year, but The Sun reports that there could be a three-way tussle for his signature this summer.
Aouar is said to have been closely monitored by Liverpool this season, with boss Jurgen Klopp seeing him as a replacement for James Milner and Adam Lallana.
City manager Pep Guardiola has publicly spoken of his admiration for the Frenchman in the past, meanwhile, and Arsenal counterpart Mikel Arteta is also rumoured to be a big fan.
Given the growing interest in Aouar, the report indicates that Lyon are holding out for a £65m offer.
