Lyon’s Houssem Aouar offered to Roma

Andy Mattioli

Roma are being linked with out-of-favor Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar whose contract with the French giants is set to expire in 2023.

As the capital club continues to work to strengthen their midfield, Houssem Aouar’s entourage have offered their player to the Giallorossi, reports Il Tempo.

The 24-year-old had been linked with several top European clubs including Juventus over the past few years.

The Italian newspaper reports that Aouar fits the ideal profile for Roma’s much needed reinforcement in the midfield: young, very good technically, able to lead the team from the back and dictate the tempo of the play.

General Manager Tiago Pinto is in contact with the player’s entourage and considers him a valuable back-up option in case other market targets were to fade away.

The estimated price-tag for Aouar is currently inferior to €20 million.
