After receiving a “offer,” Tottenham informs Lyon of their position on Houssem Aouar’s transfer.
Houssem Aouar, a Lyon playmaker, has been linked with a move to Tottenham.
According to sources, Tottenham has responded to Lyon’s offer for Houssem Aouar after being ‘offered’ the playmaker in a possible deal. Premier League clubs have long been interested in signing Aouar, but no deal has yet been completed.
The midfielder’s value has decreased as he enters the final two years of his Lyon deal.
Last summer, Aouar was valued at roughly £51 million by the club’s president, Jean-Michel Aulas, but it is unlikely that interested parties will be able to spend that much this year.
Following the failure of a TV rights deal, French clubs are struggling for cash this summer.
Lyon is likewise experiencing a micro-crisis.
Supporter discontent over a difficult 2020-21 season has been exacerbated by a poor start to the new season, in which they have yet to win.
Spurs have been ‘offered’ the chance to sign Aouar before next Tuesday’s transfer deadline, according to writer Fabrizio Romano, as Lyon aim to make as much money as possible on one of their most prized assets.
The Premier League club, on the other hand, has responded by stating that Aouar is not a priority for them right now.
The North Londoners have not made an official offer for the France international, nor have they made a formal offer for Weston McKennie, another rumored transfer target.
Despite having already signed winger Bryan Gil earlier this summer and being buoyed by Harry Kane’s announcement that he will stay at the club beyond Tuesday’s transfer deadline, manager Nuno Espirito Santo appears to want to sign another forward.
Spurs have been linked with bids for Adama Traore of Wolves and Noni Madueke of PSV. However, since that his contract has been extended until 2025, a deal for the latter is doubtful.
According to Spanish daily AS, Spurs and Wolves have agreed on Traore’s price of roughly £39 million, but they are at differences over how the deal will be handled.
Traore rose to fame as one of the top wingers in the Premier League while playing for Nuno’s Wolves.
The Portuguese manager now appears to be keen on bringing the Spaniard to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
If Traore joins, he will almost certainly play alongside Kane this season after the England captain stated that he will. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
