Some Liverpool fans love the idea of Houssem Aouar joining the club. Reports link the Reds with the 22-year-old.
Liverpool fans took to Twitter on Wednesday evening as Goal linked the club with Houssem Aouar.
Journalist Neil Jones has the Frenchman down as a target, should Gini Wijnaldum leave. The Dutchman has an expiring contract, of course.
The report names both Aouar and Brighton’s Yves Bissouma as possible replacements. However, it does mention these are just two ‘among others’.
This would see Liverpool repeat their reported interest from last year. The Mirror claimed back then that Aouar was one of two priority targets, along with Timo Werner.
The Reds signed neither but Aouar didn’t move anywhere. Now there opportunity is there to rekindle that interest.
Liverpool fans certainly appear to like this one, judging from the reaction on Twitter.
Imagine Thiago- Fabinho – Aouar. We’d actually win everything— Miles (@Milesscarn) March 3, 2021
Phhh, Aouar is a absolutely dream— Vᴀsᴋᴏ 🔴🇧🇬 (@OfficialPetroz) March 3, 2021
What RTK has to say
We’re right there with them. We think Aouar would be a fantastic signing and a wonderful Wijnaldum replacement.
So the reaction here isn’t any surprise to us. Aouar could be a magnificent signing – depending on the price.
It’s very difficult to judge price-tags right now, however. Are Lyon even willing to sell? Do they feel they have to? Not having fans will affect every club, after all.
But if Aouar is available for any reasonable price, we hope Liverpool move. They’ll almost certainly need a first-team midfielder anyway and the 22-year-old fits the bill to an ideal degree.
