Manchester City will make formal contact with Lyon for Houssem Aouar – RMC

RMC report that Premier League side Manchester City will make contact with Lyon for 21-year-old French midfielder Houssem Aouar in the coming weeks, once the COVID-19 crisis further abates.

Juventus are also interested in the French youth international and the excellent relationship between Juve and OL at board level would help facilitate negotiations.

However, a third club has entered the race, at that is PSG, who at board level have a number of high profile figures who would like the Ligue 1 leaders to formally make a move this summer for the player.

Owing to the COVID-19 crisis, at present no club has yet to make formal contact with Lyon about a deal. However, OL will not block Aouar’s departure this summer should he desire to leave, although they will not do business for anything less than €50m.
