Roma have reportedly reached an agreement with French midfielder Houssem Aouar.

The Giallorossi are looking to strengthen their midfield in January and as a result have been in contact with several intermediaries in Europe, one of whom put Roma in touch with the entourage of Houssem Aouar.

According to Radio Radio, the Lyon midfielder has agreed to personal terms with the capital club. General Manager Tiago Pinto considers him the ideal alternative to Davide Frattesi, whom Sassuolo have been unwilling to let go in January.

Now, Roma are expected to negotiate a small transfer fee for Aouar whose contract with Lyon is set to expire in June.
