Juventus target Aouar on the market

According to L’Equipe, Olympique Lyonnais are prepared to sell Juventus and Manchester City target Houssem Aouar for €50m.

The midfielder will turn 22 next month and is under contract until June 2023, having come up through their youth academy.

He attracted a lot of attention from overseas clubs after strong performances this season, including in the Champions League against Juve.

Aouar scored nine goals and provided seven assists in 37 competitive appearances for Lyon.

It’s reported the price-tag is set at €50m, but the important thing is that Olympique Lyonnais are eager to sell after missing out on European qualification.

Juventus and Manchester City are the favourites for his signature, although the Bianconeri’s first choice would be Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo in an exchange with Miralem Pjanic.
