Lyon youngster on Barca radar

Le Championnat

Spanish giants Barcelona have reportedly entered the race to sign Lyon’s young midfield star Houssem Aouar.

The 19-year-old has been turning heads with his displays in the middle of the park for OL and, unsurprisingly, the big boys have begun to circle.

The France Under-21 ace recently scored his first goal for the club and is highly-rated at the Groupama Stadium, and it seems as though the Catalans are keen to take him to the Nou Camp.

French publication L’Equipe are stating that the La Liga club’s interest extends beyond mere appreciation of his talents and they have already made contact with his representatives.

The youngster has been named on the team sheet in eight straight games this season, with Lyon winning three of their last eight Ligue 1 games by 5-0
