Real Betis are reportedly hoping to sign former Arsenal transfer target Houssem Aouar on a free transfer window. The contract of the midfielder is going to end in the next summer transfer window with Lyon.

However, both sides have not made the move to extend the stay. Hence, the La Liga side are in advanced negotiations with his agent for a move in the next summer transfer window.

REAL BETIS AND HOUSSEM AOUAR TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY

According to reports, Real Betis are hoping to sign Houssem Aouar in the January transfer window. The report also claims that the La Liga side tried to sign him in the last summer transfer window. However, they could not find an agreement with both Lyon and the player. There were also claims that Ligue 1 side were going to offer him a contract extension. However, it looks like this is not the season. At the moment, both Aouar nor Lyon have not made any effort to extend the stay.

Hence, Real Betis are hoping to take advantage of the situation. The report also claims that they are ready to offer him a five-year contract. A potential contract will also include the midfielder earning 2.2 million per year and a 4.4 million signing bonus. The La Liga side are also willing to pay him 30 percent of his future sale. However, the La Liga club is not the only option for Houssem Aouar. Nottingham Forest, Inter Milan, and AC Milan are also monitoring his situation.

ARSENAL WERE REPORTEDLY SHOWING INTEREST IN HIM A NUMBER OF SEASONS AGO

According to reports, a number of seasons ago, Arsenal had serious interest in signing him. However, they were not willing to bid higher than 35 million. Although, Lyon wanted a fee around of 50-55 million for their star midfielder in 2020. This is because many were calling him the future of the France midfielder. It is because he had helped Lyon reach the Champions League semi-final. Manchester City, Juventus, and Barcelona were also monitoring his situation.

However, the midfielder could not repeat the same performances in the next season. He also managed to get only 1 international cap for the France national team. Hence, it looks like it is going to be a free transfer to Real Betis in the next summer transfer window. However, the transfer is not at all bad for the French midfielder. This is because the La Liga side have managed to qualify for Europa League in the recent season under the management of Manuel Pellegrini.

Hence, it looks like Real Betis fans are going to enjoy the potential signing of Houssem Aouar. Arsenal will also hope to sign a midfielder in the January transfer window. However, at the moment, the player is not Aouar. There are also chances that other interested sides try to sign for a low fee in the January transfer window. Lyon are ready to sell him for only 8-10 million because of his contract situation.
