SM: Lyon star reaches agreement with Roma and forces Milan to shift focus

By Isak Möller -

Houssem Aouar has been linked with a move to Serie A for several months, with both AC Milan and Roma mentioned as possible destinations. However, it seems the latter side have won that race. 

As learned by our colleagues at, the Lyon star is now just one step away from Roma. His contract with Lyon will expire in the summer and he has reached an agreement with the Giallorossi over a five-year deal worth €2m per season.

Milan were also interested in the player but due to these updates, they will now shift focus to Brahim Diaz. As we also reported earlier today, the Rossoneri will start the negotiations with Real Madrid from scratch and aim to close a deal at €15m.

Brahim Diaz has been an important player this season, especially in the Champions League, and Milan are hoping that he can step up in Rafael Leao’s absence. The Portuguese winger, in fact, will likely miss the first leg against Inter on Wednesday.

  1. I know it is unrelated but we must sign Elye Wahi as our new number 9 just watched his match last night and he is so good.

  2. Looking at his playing time under 500 minute this season, he must be injury prone or bench warmer. AC Milan only linked with him but never chasing him official

  3. If Roma & Marseille were the only teams who were serious to land this guy on a free transfer, then maybe he just isn’t that good? Anybody can look good on YouTube, but if bigger teams weren’t interested in Aouar, I don’t think he can be worth investing in – Not as a replacement for Diaz

  4. Woww focus on diaz?? A clown on the field. If you want the playmaker please sign matteo pessina. Hes good and more cheaper price and his salary.

  5. Hussain Aouar had serious injuries throughout this whole season. A bad ankle in football is career ending. Though he is free, and indeed a very good player, it wouldn’t be a wise investment. We dont need another Conti case. Conti was no way or shape a bad player. He would literally be the best RB in the world if he was fit by now. But injuries ruined him.
