OL: Aouar first victim of the winter transfer window?

The winter transfer window did not take long to start at OL with the signing of Dejan Lovren to strengthen the defensive sector of Les Gones.

Laurent Blanc has repeated it at length in interviews, he wants reinforcements during this winter transfer window. The Olympique Lyonnais coach was undoubtedly reassured by the signing of Dejan Lovren as soon as the transfer window opened, a significant reinforcement in central defense. The former PSG coach is still waiting for reinforcements during this month of January, but Laurent Blanc is well aware that the movements will not be able to follow one another in one direction during this transfer window. Arrivals yes, but it will also take departures to maintain a certain balance in the locker room and consistency in the salary grid. In the departures department, it is Houssem Aouar who is the main candidate for a transfer and the interest of AS Roma, known for a long time, is much more present than ever according to information from Calcio Mercato in Italy.

Aouar very close to AS Roma?

The transalpine media understands that AS Roma has recently contacted the entourage of Houssem Aouar and that an agreement in principle has almost been reached between the Roman club and the midfielder of Olympique Lyonnais. José Mourinho wants to recruit the French international from the winter transfer window and AS Roma will now have to approach OL in order to negotiate the transfer of Houssem Aouar. As a reminder, the Rhone midfielder has only six months left on his contract and therefore Roma should not make a big offer to Lyon. It now remains to know the requirements of Jean-Michel Aulas and John Textor in this file which will necessarily be negotiated at less than 10 million euros for the Gones. A transfer of Houssem Aouar this winter would nevertheless be a lesser evil for Lyon, which must absolutely avoid a start for zero next summer in order to limit the damage financially in this file.
