Manchester United are keen on signing Lyon playmaker Houseem Aouar this summer, according to ESPN.
The Red Devils have joined Premier League rivals Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspurs, and Arsenal in the race for the playmaker.
As per the report, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that Houseem Aouar is a perfect Paul Pogba’s replacement, who is considering moving on from Old Trafford.
Moreover, Lyon are willing to part ways with the 23-year-old as the French side are in financial dire straits. However, they rejected Arsenal’s €40m offer for the midfielder last summer but would be ready to accept a €25m bid now.
Aouar’s last season’s numbers are not particularly impressive after contributing 7 goals and 3 assists in 30 Ligue 1 games.
However, it’s his performances in the 2019–20 Champions League campaign that particularly caught the eye of the EPL heavyweights.
Then the midfielder provided 6 assists and scored a goal as his Lyon side reached the semi-finals, beating Man City in the Round of 8.
