Leicester City in contact for Lyon’s Houssem Aouar

L’Équipe report today that Leicester City have been in contact over a potential transfer for Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.

With the 23-year-old’s contract expiring in just over a year and his form taking a hit since his impressive Champions League campaign in 2020, the Frenchman could soon be on the way out.

Les Gones’ match against Clermont tomorrow night could be his last. Two years ago, he had been the target of various clubs across Europe – with Pep Guardiola a fan in particular.

Since then, injuries and inconsistent form have seen his stock fall. His 11 goal contributions in 44 games this season is a marked decrease from previous campaigns. He nevertheless still has interest from abroad, with rumours pointing to contacts with The Foxes.
