Arsenal are in talks over a summer deal for Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal, according to reports in France.
The 24-year-old’s current contract with the Ligue 1 club expires at the end of the season, meaning that he could leave on a free transfer this summer.
And Foot Mercato claim that the Gunners have already got in touch with the Algeria international’s representatives over a potential deal.
But Arsenal face stiff competition with Atletico Madrid, Monaco, Valencia, AC Milan and Everton all keeping tabs on the midfielder’s situation.
Ghezzal was one of the stars of Lyon’s season last year, scoring eight goals and registering eight assists in 29 Ligue 1 appearances.
But this term, a hamstring injury has restricted the tricky winger to just nine league starts so far.
