Many Tottenham fans have been discussing a news update linking their club with a move for Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.
ESPN journalist Julien Laurens has recently provided an update about Aouar, claiming that Tottenham have now entered the race to sign the midfielder. The journalist claimed that while Arsenal are still interested and keen on the Frenchman, Spurs are have now registered their own interest.
Do you believe that Spurs can sign Aouar?
Laurens’ update was relayed on Twitter by The Spurs Express. Many Tottenham fans began talking about the news.
What did Spurs fans make of this news?
“Would be a class signing Especially if we play 5-3-2.”
“Get him in asap then Kounde or Lacroix and Tomiyasu and I’m happy.”
“Stick Sissoko in a player plus cash deal.”
Aouar has constantly shown his ability to contribute to goals from midfield and even in the 2020/21 campaign, the Lyon star scored seven times and racked up three assists in Ligue 1 (as per WhoScored).
Harry Winks’ future at Tottenham is undecided and the club are thought to be open to offers for Moussa Sissoko. It suggests that they’d need depth in midfield and Aouar would provide that.
Since Arsenal, Liverpool and United are also in the race, signing the Frenchman would be quite a statement from Spurs and since Aouar is still 23, he may still improve in the future, too.
