Liverpool Keeping Tabs On Ligue 1 Ace With Scouts In Attendance: Should The Reds Make A Move?
According to a recent report by the Mercato 365 (translated by the Daily Mirror), Liverpool are monitoring the progress of Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Houssem Aouar. The same source has also revealed that the Reds scouts were present during Lyon’s 3-0 win over Marseille on Monday night and were keeping a close eye on the French midfielder.
Aouar’s Outstanding Campaign In The Ligue 1
The Lyon born prospect has already managed to establish himself in the French outfit’s senior team after coming through the club’s youth system earlier in his playing career. Aouar has enjoyed a stellar campaign for Lyon thus far after putting in some impressive displays under Bruno Génésio’s stewardship during this season.
The French starlet has made 45 appearances for the Ligue 1 side this term, registering seven goals while providing ten assists across all competitions. He has also played for his nation in both the Under-17 and the Under-21 levels so far and may be destined to be an integral part of the French senior squad in the coming years.
Aouar has displayed incredible potential and could be nurtured into a world-class play in his position if given an ideal environment to improve his game. Jurgen Klopp could be the perfect man to make the most out of the French midfielder’s talents as he is always willing to give his young players a chance to succeed at Anfield.
What Will The French Wonderkid Bring To Merseyside?
Aouar is quite versatile as he can operate in multiple positions in the middle of the park. He can switch between playing as a defensive midfielder or assuming a more attacking role in the opposition half. The Lyon ace is also capable of filling in as a left winger if required.
The French youngster boasts decent pace under his belt and doesn’s lose possession while travelling with the ball at his feet. He can also link up play well with others and has an eye for a defence-splitting pass in the final third.
Should Klopp Make A Move For Aouar?
Liverpool should consider orchestrating a move for the French midfielder this summer if he is available for the right price. The Lyon talent’s versatility and creativity could make him a grand success at the red half of Merseyside next season.
