Back in the news is Aouar as teams close on him after Lyon confrimng he will be sold this window.

Juventus adn City seem the most likely landing spots.

Aouar comes in as someone who has already earned public praise from Pep Guardiola. That’s not something he does for just any player.

Aouar can play anywhere. His return of 24 goals and 24 assists in 133 games for Lyon shows his competence in front of goal, too. His clubs failure to qualify for Champions League can be City’s offering barring CAS clearance. I could see this deal being done it makes sense.

Houssem Aouar interest from everywhere has ‘cooled’. So despite many clubs making contact it seems the race for the 21-year-old is now between City and Juventus.

The choice should be hard for him as he looks for continuous playing time and that might be hard to come for at City and easier at Juve.

We’ll see.
