Lyon possess an inmense amount of talent, and some of their best players are likely to play in bigger teams/leagues next season. There have been several teams linked with players such as Nabil Fekir and Memphis Depay, but another one who has not been mentioned as much is Houssem Aouar.

The France U21 international is attracting plenty of attention from Europe’s top clubs this season, and all signs indicate he might leave the Ligue 1 during the upcoming summer. His fantastic performances for Lyon have caught the eye of both Barcelona and Liverpool.

The Merseyside club almost signed the French winger when he was a teenager, but talks never progressed. And now they will have to battle with the Catalan giants for his signature, as Barca have been tracking him down for quite a while and would look to make a move for him as soon as next summer.

In addition to Liverpool and Barcelona, the north London giants Arsenal are also said to be keeping a close eye on the young Frenchman. But the Spanish side appear as favourites to acquire the star midfielder.

Aouar amassed 25 Ligue 1 appearances since breaking into the first team last summer and also bagged a healthy return of six goals for his team.
