Media reports coming out of France claim that five-time European champions Liverpool are one of several clubs keen on a move for highly-rated Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
The Reds midfield options have been under the headlines with several reports claiming that it’s the weak link in the team.
Liverpool had earlier strengthened their midfield in the summer with the acquisition of Naby Keita from German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.
The Merseyside giants were said to have paid around £57m to secure his transfer from the Europa League campaigners but the Guinean international player has failed to live up to his expensive price tag.
Liverpool could move for the aforementioned Aouar when the winter transfer reopens in the next few weeks.
Houssem Aouar has impressed for Lyon this season in both the Premier League and Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool could face the threat of Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea in the quest to sign him in the New Year.
Aouar drew high praise from Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola for his performance against the Citizens in the Champions League.
The 20-year-old was a thorn in the flesh of Manchester City in both matches in the Champions League this season.
