L’Équipe report that 21-year-old central midfielder Houssem Aouar will be sold by Ligue 1 side Lyon this summer, for a free around €50m.
He is still very closely tracked by Manchester City, where Pep Guardiola really appreciates him. The outlet speculates that a sale early on in the window could be in the offing, which would allow OL to reinvest back into the market.
Under contract until 2023 with Lyon, Aouar has come to the end of a cycle with the club, having had an excellent 2019/20 campaign, showing up big time in big clashes with PSG and Juventus. However, the French youth international has shown a little less in your average Ligue 1 encounters, which the outlet claims has been a source of frustration on the part of some of his team-mates.
