Manchester City are moving for Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
City boss Pep Guardiola sung the praises of Aouar after this week’s 2-2 draw in their Champions League tie.
And L’Equipe says Guardiola’s No2, Mikel Arteta, was impressed – so much so that City officials went straight into talks with Aouar’s management immediately after the game.
City also asked Lyon about a price for Aouar as they made it clear they’re eager to do business for the youngster.
The midfielder, 20, is tied to City until 2023.
