Tottenham are showing an interest in Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, according to reports in France.

Arsenal & Houssem Aouar

Fans of the English Premier League are now likely familiar with the name of Houssem Aouar simply due to his links to Arsenal.

The French midfielder found himself quite heavily linked with a move to the Gunners during the 2020 delayed summer transfer window.

In the end, however, Aouar remained at Lyon, with Arsenal instead bringing in Thomas Partey as a midfield reinforcement.

However, with the 2021 summer window now open, we have once again seen Arsenal linked with a move for the 23-year-old.

It was reported earlier this month that Arsenal were considering reviving their interest in Aouar, with Lyon believed to be willing to sell him for around €25m:

Tottenham linked with Aouar

Now though, as mentioned above, it appears as though Aouar is attracting interest from another Premier League side.

And that side, according to French outlet le10sport, is Arsenal’s city rivals, Tottenham.

The report from le10sport mentions Spurs having an interest in Lille midfielder, Renato Sanches. However, they add that the Lilywhites are also thinking of Aouar in a similar profile.

Little more information is given regarding Spurs’ interest in Aouar. But Arsenal fans would no doubt be somewhat annoyed if their north London rivals were to sign the Frenchman over them.
