Lyon reveal stance on Houssem Aouar amid rumoured Man City interest
The 20-year-old midfielder has had a fine season for Lyon and has attracted interest from several of Europe’s top clubs, with City said to be one of them.
“We talk a lot about Ndombele, but Aouar is also excellent. He’s always very calm with the ball at his feet, with an excellent technical quality.”
Aouar himself dropped a massive transfer hint himself on Monday by singing the praises of Guardiola.
“Then there is Pep Guardiola who is the reference for me in terms of a manager. He sees everything before anyone else.”
The pair were unveiled in their first press conference on Tuesday and Juninho didn’t waste any time in revealing his intentions in regards to the future of Aouar and his other star players.
“The president promised that at most three players would leave,” the Brazilian said.
“Houssem Aouar is an amazing technical player. We must keep him.”
The Frenchman’s contract at Lyon does not expire until 2023.
