Liverpool are weighing up a possible move to sign Houssem Aouar in the summer transfer window, with Lyon ready to cash in on him.
According to a report by French publication L’Equipe, Houssem Aouar could be available for transfer in the summer transfer window. Liverpool are interested in signing the French midfielder, who is valued by Lyon at €50 million, and could sanction a move for him.
Aouar joined Lyon as an 11-year-old in 2009 and gradually grew threw the ranks in the club’s youth setup. The Frenchman was given his break in the first-team aged just 18 in 2017 and he has since gone on to cement his place in the senior side. Now a mainstay in the midfield for Les Gones, the 21-year-old has already racked up close to 150 appearances for the club.
However, despite enjoying a solid 2019-20 campaign, Aouar might have played his last game for Lyon. Having missed out on European football after the Ligue 1 season was brought to a premature end, Lyon are likely to begin an overhaul this summer, with a few big names set to leave. Aouar is one such player, and Liverpool are hoping to pounce on the situation.
