Lyon’s Houssem Aouar, who is a reported Arsenal target, has told French TV he is staying at the Ligue 1 club.

The 22-year-old Frenchman, who has been linked with the Gunnersexternal-link this summer, scored the equaliser against Marseille on Sunday and says he can “still offer something” at Lyon.

“I want to continue the adventure with the club that started my career,” Aouar told Telefoot La Chaine.

Lyon are 14th in Ligue 1, having won one of their opening six matches.

Frenchman Aouar says last season’s Champions League semi-finalists “owe it to ourselves to do much better”.

“I hope we will get our heads up quickly,” he added.
