As his contract ends next June, Houssem Aouar does not yet know what his future will hold. Fortunately for him, there is no shortage of suitors.
After years of collaboration, the story between Houssem Aouar and OL is coming to an end. The young midfielder trained at the club does not wish to extend his lease, which ends in June 2023. His objective, to change air. Because in Lyon, Aouar can no longer do it, between performances at half mast and repeated injuries. His departure should bring nothing to OL unless a miracle solution is found before the end of this winter transfer window… Because everything is still possible but it will have to depend on the sales or movements of other teams. This is particularly the case of AC Milan. The Lombard club would like to recover Houssem Aouar in the coming days, but that will depend on the future of Tiémoué Bakayoko.
Aouar, a way out this winter in the transfer window?

According to information from Corriere dello Sport, AC Milan hopes to end Bakayoko’s loan as soon as possible and send him back to Chelsea. Once the place is freed, the Lombard management should then try to recruit Aouar to OL. But nothing looks easy in this case, Aouar being courted by other clubs, especially in the Premier League and he will certainly want to negotiate a nice signing bonus next summer. On the side of Lyon, we will no doubt be attentive to the approaches by the end of January. A cash inflow will not be too much, especially since the Gones should still do some operations to try to strengthen a workforce in total loss of confidence and which, according to Laurent Blanc, lacks experience and science of the game. Fans of OL are therefore not at the end of their troubles, while European qualification at the end of the season seems more and more hypothetical.
