L’Equipe: Man City target Aouar WILL leave Lyon

Houssem Aouar will leave Lyon, the club he joined aged 11, this summer, L’Equipe reports.

Lyon finished seventh in Ligue 1 this season, meaning they failed to qualify for Europe for the first time in 25 years.

The knock-on effect for OL means several of their star players could be on the move. And L’Equipe insists Aouar will leave in the next transfer window.

The cultured 21-year-old midfielder has many admirers, including Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. City rate Aouar highly and have the wealth to spend the €50m that Lyon will want.

Lyon are preparing for several big name departures and plan to give youth product Maxence Caqueret a bigger role. Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, who joined from Athletico Paranaense in January, will also become a focal point of the team. Guimaraes is already interesting Barcelona but will not be allowed to leave Lyon this year.

With Aouar certain to leave, Lyon could also lose Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay in the summer. Manchester United have been linked with Dembele, while AC Milan could swoop for Depay.
