Juventus is the favourite to sign Houssem Aouar from Olympique Lyonnais because of Manchester City’s ban on the Champions League, according to.
Incidentally, his Lyon faces Juventus in the second leg of their August 16 tie Champions League Series.
The Ligue 1 club has already put their star midfielder on the market, which can bring in a tidy profit.
It is thought to be a race between Juve and Manchester City, but there is one very important advantage for the Bianconeri:
There is a two-year suspension levied on City by UEFA for violations of Financial Fair Play by the Champions League.
Aouar turns 22 later this month and has scored nine goals in 37 competitive games this season and seven assists for Olympique Lyonnais. The 21-year-old is a member of their youth academy.
