They were held to a 0-0 draw at Nimes last time out, but will be expected to get back to winning ways against Lorient, who are two points further back in 16th at the moment.

In addition to Aouar, the Gunners are also being heavily linked with Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey, but the Spanish giants will not, as it stands, sanction the midfielder’s departure unless his £46m ($58m) release clause is triggered.

This result not only sent PSG through to the semi-finals of Europe’s premier club competition as they won the last-eight tie on away goals after a 2-2 aggregate scoreline, it saw Lyon knocked out of the competition for the first time in seven years.

With the Parisians also top of the French league, it feels like a huge moment. But it is unlikely to be a moment that signals the beginning of the end for one of the greatest teams in sporting history.

That is not to take anything away from PSG. The mental strength they showed to come back from a 1-0 defeat in their home leg of this tie, as well as after falling a further goal behind four minutes into the away leg, was absolutely incredible given their record in Lyon.
