Fans of Manchester City have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports that City are ‘moving more concretely’ for Lyon Midfielder Houssem Aouar.
Aouar is currently enjoying a fine season with Lyon, with the central midfielder scoring three goals and providing three assists over 25 Ligue 1 appearances, in addition to a further goal and three assists from five Champions League fixtures, as well as another five goals and one assist across seven games in the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue.
The £49.5million-rated 21-year-old has averaged a remarkable WhoScored match rating of 7.02 in the league this season, as well as an even more incredible 7.73 rating in the Champions League; performances that have contributed to the French U21 international becoming one of the most sought after prospects in European football.
One of the clubs reportedly seeking Aouar’s signature is Manchester City, who, according to French publication L’Equipe (via Sport Witness), are now ‘‘moving more concretely’ with their interest in recent months.
In reaction to the reports, which were relayed by Man City Xtra on Twitter, fans of the club have flocked to share their opinion on the matter, with many stating their belief that they would love to see the deal happen, while others have claimed that a midfield containing the Frenchman would be one of City’s best for years.
