Just last month, CaughtOffisde reported that Liverpool’s interest in Aouar is ‘growing’ as the Reds look to find a suitable replacement for Gini Wijnaldum.

Italian outlet Calciomercato, who claim Arsenal are also keen on the Lyon star, state Jurgen Klopp is an ‘obstacle’ for Juventus, should they opt to make a move this summer.
