Houssem Aouar was keen on leaving Lyon last summer and even though several sides were said to be interested, the midfielder couldn’t get the move he had desired.

The 23-year-old is again looking for a way out of the Ligue 1 side this summer, and reports coming out of from France stated Tottenham Hotspur are ‘ready to fight’ Arsenal for the midfielder’s signature.

Liverpool have now joined the two north London clubs in the chase for the France international.

That’s according to Le10 Sport, who stress the Reds need to bring in a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, who left Anfield for Paris Saint-Germian on a free transfer.

Jürgen Klopp’s side looked at the Lyon player two years ago and he’s back again on their agenda for next season.

It’s claimed the Merseyside club have ‘reactivated’ their interest in their old target, but that’s about the only information mentioned about Liverpool.

Lyon, for their part, are ready to allow Aouar leave if they receive an offer ‘between €20m and €25m’.
