After several 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 recruit Houssem Aouar. Under contract until June 2023 with theOL, the midfielder had advanced contacts with Bétis Seville where his former teammate Nabil Fékir plays. Nottingham Forrest, the club promoted in the Premier League has also positioned itself. If his departure seemed inevitable, against all odds, the 24-year-old remained with his favorite club with the aim of bringing OL back to the European Cup. The player trained at the club is thus playing his seventh season with Lyon and renews the thread with the former glories of the club, Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso. Nevertheless, an English club is not giving up and would like to try its luck during the winter transfer window to convince Aouar to come and discover the Premier League.
Aouar futur coéquipier by Bruno Guimaraes ?
According to information from the Sunderland Echo, Newcastle are very interested in Aouar. The Premier League’s new rich already signed Bruno Guimaraes during the 2022 winter transfer window for a transfer of 50 million euros. This time, despite the fact that Houssem Aouar will only have 6 months of contract left this winter, the Magpies are ready to pay the sum of 18 million euros to afford the services of the Franco-Algerian. Newcastle, which dreams of competing in the Champions League and winning it with its new investors, failed to recruit a player in midfield this summer. Houssem Aouar is therefore the priority of the club 4 times champion of England. 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 excluded, especially to avoid a free start in June 2023.
