Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar is a key target for Roma and they are looking to sign the player on a free transfer in the summer.
Sky Italia have reported that Roma are serious contenders for Aouar and the Giallorossi are looking to make sure that they beat competition for the midfielder in the summer. They are working to make sure that he signs a five-year deal with them from the summer of 2023 onwards.
Real Betis and Eintracht Frankfurt are also interested in the player, but Roma are ahead of others in the chase currently. Juventus have previously pondered over a move for Aouar as well but have failed to sign him.
This season, Aouar has made 12 Ligue 1 appearances so far and he has scored once, while assisting once as well. He has played twice in the domestic cup for Lyon as well. While his stock has reduced over the last two seasons, a free transfer certainly won’t do Roma much harm.
