Liverpool will soon be in pre-season action, but it wouldn’t be an enormous surprise to see one or two deals go through at Anfield before then – most likely player sales.

 

Aouar links reemerge with bargain fee

You may remember Houssem Aouar from such hits as 2020’s “Arsenal want him for £50 million” or, one year earlier, “Aouar reveals why he rejected Reds trial as a teenager”.

The star of those particular headline acts has had a very up-and-down year with Lyon, breaking into the France squad but also missing out on senior action through injuries, Covid and a downturn in form.

He played as both an 8 and a 10 for Lyon last term, so the attraction of how he might fit in as an attacking midfielder is clear, and French journalist Julien Laurens says the Reds remain admirers and he could leave for around €25m – or just over £21m.

We are not the only club in the hunt, of course, and there’s no clear indication that a bid is imminent.
