Houssem Aouar in Liverpool has been a longtime saga that has dominated the titles in previous transfer windows, but it seems that the Frenchman may finally be ready to move away from his home country.
According to the French publication L’Equipe, Lyon is ready to collect its precious goods this summer and is looking for a commission of around € 50 million (£ 43 million).

The report states that together with Liverpool, Manchester City is a keen pretender to the attacking midfielder and closely followed the 21-year-old in action.
After learning how Aouar could finally leave Lyon, Liverpool fans took Twitter to express their views on the situation.
I will gladly take it to Werner

It will be a brilliant, brilliant signature! Seriously I hope to go beyond City. I can’t see anyone else arriving at that price or anywhere else he would like to go.

Absolute theft for that price

Potentially a superb addition to Klopp’s lineup. Fekir was supposed to take Coutinho’s place, but I’d prefer this guy! #AnnounceAouar

A Liverpool fan simply insisted that Aouar is an important update on current Reds star Adam Lallana.
Liverpool makes this happen with a lallana update 😍

What happens with football to feel the financial impacts of the current climate, it is difficult to see if Liverpool could meet the asking price that Lyon seems to want.
If only you could sign one …
The clubs will understandably be a lot more thrifty with their spending this summer, so committing around £ 43m on a player seems a bit of a stretch.
But that could be the key to securing Liverpool’s top tree position for next season.
