ESPN go on to write that Arsenal are now facing competition from three of their biggest Premier League rivals: Liverpool FC, Manchester United and Spurs.

ESPN reveal that Manchester United are keeping tabs on Aouar as they look to resolve the uncertainty surrounding Paul Pogba’s future at Old Trafford.

The website highlight that Arsenal and Spurs are still at the front of the queue to sign the Lyon man.
