Many Tottenham supporters have been talking about the club’s links with a move for Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
Journalist Alexis Bernard has recently reported about the north London giants, reporting that Tottenham have Aouar on their radar. The report claims that the Frenchman is closing in on a Lyon exit and while Arsenal are alongside them in the running, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid also want him.
Can Spurs sign Aouar by selling Winks and Sissoko?
It is stated that discussions with Arsenal are ongoing but Lyon want a fee between €20 million and €25 million (£17.1 million and £21.3 million). The news about Tottenham’s interest in Aouar was relayed on Twitter by The Spurs Express. Many Tottenham fans began talking about it.
What did Spurs fans make of this news?
“Needs to happen!“
“If it makes Tanguy happy then I’m happy.”
“Oh my god please yes.”
These Spurs fans would like Aouar at their club and they’re making their views clear about the Frenchman’s potential signing.
Aouar has proven throughout his time at Lyon that he can provide goals and assists from the midfield quite regularly. Even though he didn’t rack up a great WhoScored rating last season, he still contributed to a fair amount of goals, and it could be argued that the speculation over his future last year had affected him.
It has been suggested that Spurs would be open to offers for both Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko. This could leave spots open in the midfield. Their sales could also hand Spurs some cash to potentially sign Aouar, so this could be a very good move if they can pull it off.
