Real Madrid are keeping tabs on Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar and are likely to make the French club and offer for the player, according to L’Equippe.
Lyon are in some financial straight due to the pandemic and will be willing to cash in their midfield enforcer this summer.
Aouar was initially valued at €50m by Lyon following his heroics in midfield last season. However, the Ligue 1 club are now unlikely to refuse an offer within the region of €30m for their star.
The 22-year-old Frenchman has scored 7 goals in 31 appearances to help Lyon in their push for a Champions League place next season.
Aouar is admired for his pace, passing and ability to win the ball. Those are qualities akin to Real Madrid legend Luka Modric.
