This is probably an example of “once Liverpool are linked, Liverpool will always be linked to a player,” but we’re coming on our third month without football, so what more do you want? 

Anyway, a report from Italian publication Corriere dello Sport says that the Reds are the “main antagonists” for the signature of Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, with Juventus and Real Madridsaid to also be interested. 

Personally, I like that other teams across the continent are starting to see Liverpool as some sort of sinister force, but I digress.
