Roma’s interest in Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar is concrete as the capital club are planning to reinforce their midfield in the upcoming transfer window.
Earlier today, Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport confirmed the rumors from France regarding Roma’s interest in Aouar.
In recent days, General Manager Tiago Pinto has inquired about the 23-year-old’s availability in the summer.
The Frenchman has reportedly had a falling out with Lyon and, given that his contract is set to expire next year, is on the market.
It remains to be seen whether Aouar represents an alternative to Sassuolo’s Davide Frattesi – as negotiations with Frattesi’s entourage are underway – or whether the capital club want to secure both players.
For the moment, the Giallorossi haven’t advanced any bid for the Lyon midfielder, but more developments may soon follow.
