Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus look to land the French International after failing to secure a move earlier this summer.
Last season was arguably the best season Houssem Aouar has played with his boyhood club, Olympique Lyon. The French outlet had a season to remember as they managed to beat Juventus and Manchester in the Round of 16 and quarterfinals of the restructured Champions League last season. Aouar has been a subject of interest in the transfer market for a long time now as he awaits a move from Lyon. Garnering interest from clubs such as Arsenal, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain.
Out of these clubs, Arsenal came the closest to sign the French international but eventually failed due to disagreement on transfer fees between the two clubs involved. However, it seems that Aouar’s transfer saga isn’t over yet as Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus re-ignite their interest in the Frenchman. The European giants look to rebuild their respective teams in order to achieve a little more than domestic glory as they chase the prestigious Champions League glory.
Reports suggest, that the Italian giants might have the upper hand if they decide to make a move for the 22-year-old midfielder. The presidents of Lyon and Juventus share an excellent bond between them and that could prove out to be the difference-maker in this situation. On the other hand, the French outlet wouldn’t want to sell their best midfielder to a domestic rival.
The Bianconeri look to replace Aaron Ramsey who has been disappointing since he arrived at the club more than 12 months ago. However, the valuation set by Lyon could be well over Juve’s budget who has endured massive losses due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Since his professional debut, the 22-year-old has managed to make 143 appearances for the French club, scoring 26 goals and assisting 28 times in all competitions. With interest from all around Europe, it would be interesting to see where the French International chooses to go to reach his desired goals.
