It is therefore unsurprising to see a number of big clubs linked with him, as the Sun state the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City now look set to be joined by Arsenal in pursuit of the potential £65million deal.

The Gunners could do with making a statement in the transfer market as they surely need to back new manager Mikel Arteta after this difficult season.

Aouar looks a top talent who could be ideal to give Arsenal the quality they need in the middle of the park to make Arteta’s style of play work.

The Reds could also make Aouar a key part of their team as midfield is arguably one area of slight weakness in Jurgen Klopp’s formidable side.
