Betis Sevilla very hot on Houssem Aouar!


At 23 and one year from the end of his contract, Houssem Aouar is clearly at a crossroads. Since his sparkling final 8 in the Champions League where he notably achieved a master class against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, the native of Lyon has experienced a slow descent into hell. So much so that he even lost his starting spot at OL in the heart of winter.

Returning to the Rhone eleven thanks to the multiple injuries which deprived Peter Bosz of several executives in the midfield, the French international (1st selection) found his colors at the end of the season, notably scoring a double against Montpellier (5-2 ) and scoring the winning goal on Saturday on the lawn of Clermont (1-2). Not enough to change the state of mind of the player who is clearly on the start. Already leaving last summer, Aouar, despite a not so dull record this season in L1 (6 goals and 4 assists in 36 matches) will not be retained by the seven-time champions of France as had also admitted Jean-Michel Aulas at the end of March.

At a press conference a few days ago, Claudio Cacapa, the assistant coach who replaced the sick Peter Bosz, had also sent a clear message to the player. “He has a talent and he is a player that I really like on the technical aspect. There are things he does well and others not so well. Afterwards, you have to know the desire of the player too. Either his desire is to stay and fight to have his place. Either his desire is to leave and see something else. I can’t answer you.”

Betis dreams of a Fekir-Aouar duo

It remains to be seen where the Lyon midfielder will land. Remember, two seasons ago, Aouar was announced at Juventus Turin or on the side of Arsenal just after his recital in the Champions League. Today, the courtiers are fewer and the price of the player in free fall one year from the end of his contract. According to our information, a club is currently very hot to recruit him. It is Betis Sevilla who particularly appreciate the player’s profile.

If the Andalusian club, which recently won the King’s Cup, does not have unlimited resources, the latter has in Nabil Fekir an undeniable asset for the acclimatization of the player, but also to play the leading roles in La Liga since the Betis fell within two points (or more depending on tonight’s result) of Sevilla FC in their quest for C1. On the side of the player, whose value is estimated at 15 M€, we want to give ourselves time and hope that clubs of higher caliber will come to the news. The transfer window is long and could bring its share of surprises.
