Arsenal have expressed interest in Ligue 1 hotshot monitored by Liverpool, according to source

According to Goal, the future of Olympique Lyonnais forward Rachid Ghezzal is up in the air, with the attacker hesitating about signing a new contract at the club.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas—speaking to French source Le Progress—recently admitted that there was a delay on the young attacker signing a new deal with OL, and that while they were confident he would eventually sign a new contract, there was some doubt.

The OL chief admitted that that should Ghezzal hesitate further, it would be because another club had made a more lucrative option for the striker.

According to Goal, there’s no shortage of interest in the frontman, with Arsenal, West Ham United, Swansea City and Stoke City all understood to have expressed interest in the attacker.

However, the most serious interest is believed to come from Liverpool, who would certainly represent a step up from OL.
