AC Milan appear to still be in the running for Houssem Aouar as they player took to social media to denounce rumours he is heading for Germany.
Aouar is out of contract at the end of the season and seems destined not to renew with Lyon thus making him available for a free transfer, with Milan among the teams linked by various sources given their need to reinforce the midfield.
However, Sport1 journalist Patrick Berger reported yesterday that Eintracht Frankfurt are close to signing Aouar ahead of 2023-24. The 24-year-old apparently turned down proposals from other clubs in summer, including Manchester United.
Berger said that there is nothing signed yet but negotiations are in the advanced stages, with a signing fee of €5m ready and a salary of around €3m net per season.
Aouar has since responded to that news, tweeting: “Some people know before me where I’m going to play next season…it’s great! 🤩🤣”
The Rossoneri remain in the running therefore, and Relevo recently reported that Aouar has not yet decided where he will play next season but he knows that he wants to play in the Champions League next season, with Milan currently leading the race to land him.
Let Brahim go back to Madrid, and sign Aouar. We are in need of a player like Aouar.
A technical skilled midfielder that can pass and create for others. None of our midfielders are that.
If we finally sign him for free, it will remind us to Flamini signing back then which is pretty good.
Flamini was not a great player, but he is always gave his all, and i respe t him for that
He’ll add more depth to our mid that’s for sure. For once he’s a hot commodity and almost went to Arsenal for + / – 50 mil. Age is still on his side, I believe he can still fulfil his potential.
