Benfica linked to Lyon midfielder Aouar

Benfica are linked once again with Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar according to reports coming from France, just one day after Benfica President Rui Costa announced that the club was far from done during the current transfer window of making moves to improve the club for the upcoming 2022/23 season. The 24 year old Aouar has come up through the ranks of the French club and made his first appearance with the main squad in 2016. 

Aouar has appeared in 214 games across all competitions for Lyon, scoring 40 goals while setting up 35 assists. The Frenchman was seen as the next big thing but his career went the way of his club who have slid away from contention in France. Benfica are not alone in their interest of Aouar with Spanish side Real Betis also being linked with the midfielder, Lyon are ready to move on from the player for a reported €10M.

Benfica also announced earlier today that they would be loaning center back Ferro to Dutch club Vitesse for the season.
