It may not be such bad news for Olympique Lyonnais, who sold Lucas Paqueta without replacing him: Houssem Aouar has a good chance of staying at the club this summer. At the end of the contract in a year, the midfielder wanted a change of scenery and OL wanted to sell him, but the right offer never arrived.
However, the 24-year-old did not hinder his departure and agreed with two clubs this summer: Betis Sevilla, on salary conditions similar to those he knows in Lyon, and Nottingham Forest. , promoted to the Premier League. But the two clubs could not meet OL’s demands. The last offers known to date (Nice, Benfica) were not more successful, and Aouar had not been convinced by the two projects.
The latter could only leave before the end of the transfer window if a Premier League club, the Championship that attracts him the most, agrees this Thursday with OL, which is far from being the case until ‘now. As revealed by The Team, Fulham have made an approach in recent hours, but too timid for now. Crystal Palace and Brighton have also recently expressed interest.
