Aouar is of Algerian descent, and was previouslyeligible to feature forAlgeriaeven though he hasturned out for the French youth teams at the Under-17and U-21 levels.
The youngster has been touted with a potential move to north London to join Arsenal, with the Gunners still eyeing midfield reinforcements.
Aouar firstjoined Lyon reserves and academy teamin 2009 aged 11, breaking through to the first team in 2017.
Mikel Arteta's side have appeared to ramp up their swoop for the midfielder with a view to complete the transfer by the October 5 deadline.

Aulas stated that Lyon are targeting a €40 million (£36m/$47m) fee for Aouar.
"There was a timid offer. We felt like they didn’t consider the fact that this is a player in the French national team," Aulas toldCanal+ on whether or not Arsenal had placed an offer on the table.
"So, it was an offer that did not even make us consider making a sale.”
The interviewer then asked whatAulas coulddeem a reasonablefor Aouar – either €40m or €50m.
“It is certainly more than the first number that you mentioned,” Aulas said.

"It's a week to go, I think it's going to be really busy for other clubs because not much business has been done.
"Let's see what happens.
