Last summer, Bétis Sevilla was very close to signing Houssem Aouar, but in the end they did not present the offer that made OL break.
Benefiting from a starting bonus granted him by Jean-Michel Aulas this summer, Houssem Aouar negotiated for several weeks with Bétis Sevilla, where his friend Nabil Fekir plays. attacking midfielder Olympique Lyonnais He was quite excited about the idea of signing for the Andalusian club but in the end Bétis did not come close to meeting OL’s demands, which demanded between 10 and 15 million euros for the transfer of Houssem Aouar. The French international also negotiated with Nottingham Forrest, but this did not lead to a transfer to the Premier League either. One year after the end of his contract, Aouar is, therefore, still on the market and, according to All Transfers, Bétis Sevilla has a good chance of trying his luck again to sign him during the next transfer window, next January .
Betis still wants Houssem Aouar
The media understands that Bétis Sevilla will be inclined to pay a low transfer fee to buy out the last six months of Houssem Aouar’s contract in the winter transfer window. Automatically, the leaders of OL, Jean-Michel Aulas in the lead, will not be able to claim 15 million euros for their attacking midfielder this winter, if he has not extended it in the meantime. Now it remains to be seen if an agreement can be reached and if Houssem Aouar will still be inclined to leave OL for Andalucía. Surely everything will depend on the game time that Peter Bosz grants between now and the winter break. In view of the mixed results of Olympique Lyonnais in recent weeks, it is not ruled out that the Dutch coach will review his plans and finally give Houssem Aouar a chance, although the French international’s contractual situation does not really encourage the Rhône club. . to play with him. In any case, Bétis is still in the running, determined to afford Houssem Aouar this winter.
