Liverpool and Arsenal battling to sign French wonderkid

Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar is the subject of interest from both Arsenal and Liverpool.

The 17 year-old is yet to sign professional terms with his current club, and is being courted by the Premier League duo.

The Head of Recruitment at Lyon recently talked up the youngster’s ability, praising his finishing and creative spark.

He said: “Houssem has a technical ease and good vision that allows him to see quickly,” he said.

“He has both feet, can speed up the game, but also can keep the ball at his feet when necessary and has the ability in one-on-one situations.

“He can play as a second striker or a playmaker or a runner, and is a quality finisher, capable of scoring and threading the final pass.”

Would he be better suited at Liverpool or Arsenal?
