Barca want Lyon's Aouar - report

Barcelona are monitoring highly-rated teenager Houssem Aouar from Olympique Lyonnais with an eye to a move next year, according to reports.

The 19-year-old has risen to prominence at the Ligue 1 club this campaign with 11 starts this season following Sergi Darder’s departure to Espanyol.

The French Under-21 international’s versatility is seen as a major benefit with his strongest position in the middle of the pitch but is equally adept as an attacking midfielder on the left wing.

Diario AS cites a report in L’Equipe which states the Blaugrana are monitoring Aouar’s situation amid concerns that interest in the teenager will continue to grow.
