Lyon are reportedly expecting interest from Premier League giants Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal in duo Moussa Dembele and Houssem Aouar.

Lyon are reportedly expecting a number of Premier League clubs to make a move for star duo Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembele when the transfer window reopens.

Dembele has scored 22 goals in 42 appearances across all competitions this season, with reports suggesting that the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea have been alerted to that form and could consider bringing the former Fulham striker back to the Premier League.

Aouar, meanwhile, is set to be at the centre of a £65m tug-of-war between Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal, while Italian giants Juventus have also been credited with an interest.

The 21-year-old has scored nine goals and created seven more in 37 appearances from central midfield for Lyon this season.

L'Equipe reports that the Ligue 1 outfit are readying themselves for interest in both players, and that the financial complications caused by the coronavirus shutdown could force them into selling.

Aouar is thought to favour a move to Manchester City, particularly if their European ban gets overturned, having turned down an exit from Lyon last summer in order to aid his chances of making the France squad for Euro 2020, which has now been delayed by a year.
