Juventus are also in the hunt for Aouar, as they are looking to continue their regeneration of what was an ageing squad prior to Andrea Pirlo’s arrival.
With the likes of former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey failing to impress since his arrival at Juventus, it is likely that Aouar could be a direct replacement for the Welshman, who has managed two goals in four assists in Serie A this season.
Alike Arsenal, Juventus are crying out for more creativity in the centre of the pitch, as their top assist makers are Juan Cuadrado with 16, Federico Chiesa with nine and Alvaro Morata with 10, effectively two wingers and a striker. Their top assist maker in central midfield is actually Ramsey, who looks to be out of favour and on the verge of going through the exit door.
Aouar is priced at 9/2 to sign for Juventus.
