REVEALED: Man City asked Lyon for Houssem Aouar price at final whistle

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.
