After Yves Bissouma, Houssem Aouar has been announced as a target for Liverpool to replace Gini Wijnaldum. The 22-year-old has been with the Olympique Lyonnais team since 2016. He has scored four goals and has six assists this season with OL. Aouar is under contract until June 2023.

Jurgen Klopp is looking for reinforcements for his team. The Reds could indeed lose one of their key elements: the midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. The Dutchman is indeed at the end of his contract next June. Georginio Wijnaldum is tempted by a new adventure.

To succeed the former Newcastle player, Klopp has targeted three players. They are the German Florian Neuhaus, who plays at Monchengladbach, the former Lille player Yves Bissouma, now at Brighton, and finally Houssem Aouar.

Liverpool are after Houssem Aouar: 

PSG, Barcelona, and Inter Milan are competing to welcome the Liverpool midfielder. Houssem Aouar would obviously be a fantastic addition to any of the aforementioned clubs. He is definitely desired by big names.

He had discussed with Arsenal and Juventus last summer. Unfortunately for him, none of the clubs had managed to find an agreement with Olympique Lyonnais. In case of a good offer, Jean-Michel Aulas promises not to oppose his departure.

The possibility of playing in the Champions League will play a major role in where Aouar will decide to play next season. Aouar is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder or on the flanks when needed, with his impressive dribbling skills and pace allowing for this versatility.

Liverpool fans are excited about the prospect of signing Houssem Aouar. However, Aouar seems like a perfect replacement who has a great skill set in a similar position in midfield. His transfer would turn around £45million.
