However, among the hot issues to be settled if possible by midnight Wednesday, there is the Houssem Aouar case. One year from the end of his contract with his training club, the 24-year-old midfielder knows that Peter Bosz does not count on him, and if he wants to have playing time, he will have to agree to leave. during summer. A win-win deal because Jean-Michel Aulas could also suffer from seeing the international tricolor leave for zero euros in a year. But at four days the end of the transfer market is looming and time is running out for Houssem Aouar and OL. It is in this context that a track is becoming clearer this Saturday for Aouar, and it is not OGC Nice, a club that loves to serve Lyon.
