The Gunners are looking to snap up Aouar from Lyon before the summer transfer window closes.
The 22-year-old midfielder made his 100th appearance for the French club on Sunday, in a 1-1 draw at Lorient in Ligue 1.
Asked if he would be keen to join Arsenal during a post-match interview, Aouar said: “There are contacts with clubs, I don’t know yet. We’ll see what happens in the future.”
And Arsenal’s captain believes that Aouar would be a very good signing for the Gunners, having been asked about what he could bring to the north London side.
Speaking to Canal+, Aubameyang was asked if he would like to see the Gunners sign Aouar.
In reply, he said: “Of course I am in favour.
“He would add quality. I cannot hide that, even if he is with Lyon.
“Let’s see what happens.”
