Liverpool: Fans bemoan Houssem Aouar rumour

Liverpool: Fans bemoan Houssem Aouar rumour - Liverpool

Some Liverpool supporters have been reacting negatively to a report claiming the Reds are interested in signing Lyon star Houssem Aouar.

Gini Wijnaldum’s exit to Paris Saint-Germain means Jurgen Klopp could be on the lookout for a new midfielder this summer, in order to retain depth in his squad.

While Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Thiago are strong options, the likes of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are injury-prone and Curtis Jones is still learning his trade.

According to ESPN journalist Julien Laurens, Liverpool are one of a host of Premier League clubs keen on signing Lyon midfielder Aouar this summer.

The 23-year-old scored seven times in Ligue 1 this season, also registering three assists, proving to be a creative force for the French side.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham are also believed to be keen on snapping up the £37.8million-rated Frenchman.

Despite Aouar’s talent, the rumour has been met with negativity by these Liverpool fans on Twitter, with some claiming his form has dipped and one supporter saying he is too ‘weak’ defensively.

Nah, thanks

This guy was really good, but his form dipped quite a lot. His defensive contribution is also weak, so I’m not quite sure that he can be Gini’s replacement, but he’s still a good player

I don’t think Aouar has the work rate/ethic to make it in our system. He also said Arsenal and Tottenham are in pole position

He is overrated due to his market value

We don’t need another midfielder, how about getting replacements for Salah, Mane and Firmino when they go missing this season

I’d be surprised at this. He hasn’t developed at all in the way Liverpool would have hoped for when they watched him a few years back
