Houssem Aouar will not be held against his will if he wants a summer transfer away to Lyon, although the French giants hope to keep him.

Aouar has been linked with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City in recent weeks after an impressive season for the Ligue 1 side.

Having signed a five-year deal with Lyon in 2018, the French Under-21 international won’t come cheap and it is thought he would cost potential suiters more than £40m.

Juventus have also been credited with an interest, but Lyon chief Jean-Michel Aulas is hopeful of keeping him at the club.

That said, if the player decides to move on and their valuation is met, he will be allowed to leave.

‘The player’s opinion is always essential. Keeping a player against their will is not reasonable,’ he told the club website.

‘Houssem has not expressed the desire to leave.

‘Our will is to try to keep him even if the demands are high. There is no negotiation in progress.’
