Foot OL – OL: Aouar, extension or exit this winter! – Olympique Lyonnais

This summer, OL had granted an exit voucher to Houssem Aouar, who ultimately did not find a base.

Courted by Bétis Sevilla, Houssem Aouar was rather excited about the idea of ​​leaving Olympique Lyonnais to find Nabil Fekir in Andalusia. However, the Spanish club did not have the necessary cash to meet the demands of OL, who were only asking for 10 to 15 million euros. In England, Nottingham Forrest tried their luck in the final days of the summer transfer window, but the British club’s method of payment did not suit Lyon. The French international therefore remained at OL, but his contract expires at the end of the season. In the eyes of Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, it is out of the question to see Houssem Aouar leave for free next June, which is why discussions have been initiated for a possible contract extension.

Aston Villa interested in Houssem Aouar

For the time being, Houssem Aouar has not yet responded favorably to the advances of Olympique Lyonnais. In the mind of Jean-Michel Aulas, it is clear that the OL midfielder will have to pack his bags in January if he refuses to extend. This is good, according to information from the Birmingham Mail, a Premier League club is interested in the prospect of recovering Houssem Aouar this winter. This is Aston Villa, currently 17th in the Premier League. The club in which Morgan Sanson or Boubacar Kamara plays is looking to strengthen itself with a view to ensuring its maintenance in the Premier League and could invest in January. It remains to be seen how much Olympique Lyonnais will claim for Houssem Aouar this winter, when the Gones midfielder has only six months left on his contract. For his part, will the player be interested in the Aston Villa offer, when he will be free to choose the club of his choice six months later? This is another fact that could play against OL in this case.
