AC Milan have been offered the chance to sign a midfielder from Lyon but have decided to reject the opportunity, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com report that Milan are once again attracting great players thanks to the results they have obtained in recent years, with agents and agencies having sent signals to the Rossoneri management over the past few weeks.
One such case is Houssem Aouar, a 24-year-old midfielder whose contract with Lyon is about to expire. After a phase of reflection though, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have decided to reject the chance to sign him.
Aouar is a talented player who enjoys the esteem of the sporting director Massara, but the management agree that at this moment the squad does need a player with those characteristics, having already got Charles De Ketelaere, Brahim Díaz and Yacine Adli in the squad.
Therefore, Milan will not make a move for Aouar in January, a decision that has been made and communicated to his entourage.
