Liverpool podcaster Tommy Lister has been sharing his thoughts on Olympique midfielder Houssem Aouar and a potential move to the Merseyside club for the Frenchman.

First up in this Mo Salah quiz, what is his current squad number for Liverpool?

On the subject of Aouar, who has been linked with a move to Anfield in the past, and a potential move for him during the upcoming , Lister had this to say on the matter.

He said: “I think Aouar would be absolutely perfect as a [Georginio] Wijnaldum replacement.

“He’s , he’s the perfect age that or Klopp or whoever it is, the transfer team, look at when bringing in new players.

“He’s going to be breaking up in towards his prime, he’s got time on his side. Unbelievable dribbler, passer, quality player.”

As a product of Lyon’s youth system, Aouar made his senior debut for the club back in February 2017 in a Europa game against AZ Alkmaar.

Since then, the 22-year-old, who is currently valued at £45 million, has made 162 appearances for the French club, scoring 30 goals and providing 31 assists in the process (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Tommy Lister’s comments on a potential move for Aouar…

So far this season in Ligue 1, Aouar has made 23 league appearances for Lyon in which he has managed to score five goals and provide three assists along the way, earning himself an overall season rating of 6.88/10 for his performances in the process.

Would you like to see Aouar sign to Liverpool this summer?

Given how Aouar has been one of Lyon’s most impactful players in an attacking sense this season, having racked up an average of 2.5 shots per and 1.4 key passes per game (per WhoScored), and the fact that Klopp has recently shared his concern over his side’s lack of goals in recent weeks, perhaps a move for Aouar in the summer could be just what they need to reignite their attacking power.
