Mercato Mercato – Lyon: Aouar snob by an English promoted! – Soccer


Reluctant to pay the 15 million euros claimed by Olympique Lyonnais, Nottingham Forest is nevertheless preparing to make an XXL investment in the midfield and put the Houssem Aouar track on hold…

Transfer market – Lyon: Aouar snob

Aouar is no longer popular…

Two years ago, Houssem Aouar and Olympique Lyonnais surprised Juventus Turin then Manchester City to invite themselves to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who experienced his first and only cape with the France team two months later, was then at the top of his game and all the European curiae were making eyes at him, with in particular an interest Skyblues and Pep Guardiola.

No agreement with Lyon

Since then, the situation in Le Gone has changed considerably. Between abortive departures, poor form and physical glitches, the Lyonnais no longer attracts the big names and OL are not expecting more than 15 million euros for his transfer this summer, one year from the end of his contract. After the failure of the AS Rome and Betis Sville tracks, the hottest option in recent days has led Aouar to Nottingham Forest. The player had even agreed with the ambitious Premier League promoter, but he still hesitated to give the final green light. At the same time, the English had not found common ground with OL and were reluctant to offer more than €10 million plus bonuses for resale. But all that is now in the past…

Nottingham has money, but not for Aouar…

Indeed, RMC Sport revealed this Thursday that the Habs are no longer a priority for Nottingham! And for good reason, the British are preparing to break the bank, once again this summer, by paying 40 million euros for the attacking midfielder of Wolverhampton, Morgan Gibbs-White, in the process of signing and who has a profile close to that of the Rhodanian.

Given the amount of this investment, while Forest was quibbling for €5 million with Lyon, it is clear that Aouar did not represent the preferred option for the promoted. Le Gone could find consolation with the Crystal Palace of Patrick Vieira, who recently expressed his interest but without formulating a concrete offer for the time being. The midfielder obviously had other ambitions than playing for the Premier League, but his options are limited…
