Juventus and Liverpool to battle for Houssem Aouar


Juventus and Liverpool are up against each other to sign Houssem Aouar from Olympique Lyonnais. Currently, the 22-year-old midfielder is valued at around €65 million which is a bit too expensive.

The Old Lady are considering to buy him as Aaron Ramsey is reportedly set to leave the club and rejoin Arsenal. Their midfield hasn’t been upto the mark and they believe Aouar can bring in a mix of new, fresh energy in the midfield.

The Reds on the other hand are looking for a replacement for Georgino Wijnaldum as he is looking for a potential move towards FC Barcelona. Aouar’s contract expires on summer of 2023.

Aouar to play alongside Thiago in Liverpool or Arthur in Juventus?

Houssem Aouar has been brilliant this season scoring four goals and bagging six assists in 26 appearances for Les Gones. Thus, he is one of the crucial players for Lyon’s quest for their eighth Ligue 1 trophy. Another player rumored to Lyon leave is Memphis Depay.

Their title challenge would take a huge hit if both of them leave next season. Aouar’s talent has been admired in the world and big clubs would be interested in spending some money on the Frenchman.

“He is incredible. He’s always very calm with the ball at his feet, with an excellent technical quality”. – Pep Guardiola on Houssem Aouar.

Liverpool are struggling to defend their Premier League title and the main concern is the inability of the midfield. Thiago Alcantara has failed to recreate his form back at Bayern Munich. Thus, Jurgen Klopp would be keen on rebuilding his midfield.

Similarly, Juventus also face issues in the midfield that needs to be rectified. Given their financial situation, they will offer around €34 million. Lyon definitely won’t be letting Aouar go for this low amount.
