Houssem Aouar is one of the many players to have been linked with Liverpool over the past weeks and months, along with the likes of Kylian Mbappe (The Telegraph) and Timo Werner (SPORT, via Sport Witness).
The 21-year-old is a rising star at Lyon. He has been a regular in the Ligue 1 outfit’s first XI since he was 18 years old, and he has proven that he is able to provide plenty of goals and assists from the middle of the park – last season, he scored seven times and provided 11 assists, and he had nine goals and seven assists this term before the French campaign was cancelled due to the current pandemic.
The £44.55m-valued ace – as per Transfermarkt – is said to be a target for the Reds. However, whilst David Maddock of the Daily Mirror has said that a move would have been likely this summer, the current situation means that any approach will now probably not occur.
Would you like Aouar at Liverpool?
These Reds supporters have been reacting to the news, and it is fair to say they are not too happy. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below:
