After various negotiations with various English and Spanish clubs, Houssem Aouar finally made the decision to stay at OL. But a Premier League club intends to return to the charge this winter.
This summer, several clubs tried to sign Houssem Aouar. Under contract until June 2023 with theOLThe midfielder had advanced contacts with Bétis Sevilla, where his former teammate Nabil Fékir plays. Nottingham Forrest, the promoted club in the Premier League has also positioned itself. If his departure seemed inevitable, against all odds, the 24-year-old stayed at his favorite club with the aim of leading OL back to the European Cup. The player trained at the club thus completes his seventh season with Lyon and renews the thread with the former glories of the club, Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso. However, an English club is not giving up and would like to try their luck during the winter transfer window to convince Aouar to come and discover the Premier League.
Aouar future teammate of Bruno Guimaraes?
According to information from the Sunderland Echo, Newcastle are very interested in Aouar. The new rich of the Premier League have already signed Bruno Guimaraes during the winter market of 2022 for a transfer of 50 million euros. This time, despite the fact that Houssem Aouar only has 6 months left on his contract this winter, the Magpies are willing to pay the sum of 18 million euros to seize the Franco-Algerian’s services. Newcastle, who dream of competing in the Champions League and winning it with their new investors, failed to sign a midfield player this summer. Houssem Aouar is therefore the priority of the 4-time English champion club. For their part, OL are currently sixth in Ligue 1 and are having a mixed start to the season with the aim of returning to C1. Aouar has only played one game since the resumption of the championship. A good sale would therefore not be ruled out, especially to avoid a free start in June 2023.
