Lyon confirms Arsenal-linked Aouar will be sold after champion league

Lyon technical director Juninho claims the French side will have to sell their players this summer.

"There will be departures... When you have players who play very well in a competition like this, like Moussa (Dembele) and Houssem (Aouar)..." he said.

Les Gones finished 7th in the Ligue 1 and were eliminated from the Champions League by Serge Gnabry's Bayern.

It means they won't play in Europe next year. This, together with the pandemic, means the club will be under a financial strain.

Arsenal are linked with a move for the 22-year-old midfielder. L'Equipe claim the Gunners face competition from Juventus and Man City – teams previously knocked out from the CL by Lyon – for Houssem.

Speaking of Dembele, Arsenal were reportedly keen on the 24-year-old approximately a year ago but there have been no new reports on the Gunners' interest in the striker for quite a long time now.
