Report: Hossam Aouar presented to Rome

With Henrikh Mkhitaryan Inter-bound and an Armenian-sized holeshot now on the roster, Giallorossi now finds himself linked to a host of attacking midfielders, from budding youngsters to veterans of championship pedigree. And while it is highly likely that the summer signing of Roma is a name that has yet to be associated with the club, that certainly does not prevent the Giallorossi from indulging in the ridiculous cycle of the season. Enter Hussam Al-Awar.

according to El TempoAouar has been offered Roma, and with only a year remaining on his current contract with Lyon, the Giallorossi could consider a move if their transfer goals fail.

As is often the case with these young stars, Al-Awar is linked to several Premier League teams as well, such as Arsenal and Leicester City, so Roma are unlikely to outpace the competition. And since he has been linked with the likes of Liverpool in past seasons, it appears Al-Awar is destined to move to England. The reconciliation with Lyon is the first step in securing the 23-year-old’s signature, so it may ultimately boil down to who is willing to take on the rumored €15-20 million Lyon.

Although Roma’s main goals have yet to be fully revealed, Giallorossi has been linked with the likes of Paulo Dybala, so you can understand why Pinto and Co. to Aouar as Plan B. With Aouar’s price once closer to 50 million times when Liverpool were linked with him, getting him on a reduced deal could be a steal of the summer if he can reclaim his best form at his next club.
