Big news for Chelsea fans as French target to leave Champions before close of transfer window

The big news coming out of France is that Chelsea target Houssem Aouar could be set to leave Lyon before the window closes.

It is no secret that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is a massive fan of Aouar and wanted the board to sanction a transfer move either in the summer, or the January window, to get a transfer deal done.

Lyon wanted £55million for his signature in the last summer, a fee that was more than What Chelsea wanted to pay and with Covid hitting the club in the inter window, they did not intend to pay that fee in January either.

However, there has been alot of rumours over the past few months that Aouar wants to leave the French club this summer and with his contract running down, reports have claimed that he could be worth just £17 million this summer

As per RMC Sport, the Frenchman is among multiple players that could be shown the exit door as director of sport Juninho looks to resolve an attitude problem in the dressing room.

Amid the speculation Chelsea have been given the green light to try and get a transfer deal done after Lyon boss Peter Bosz recently opened up and admitted that the tricky Frenchman can leave this summer if a big offer comes in

“Aouar? He can leave, this is modern football. Up until the last moment, he can leave,” Bosz told French outlet


Look, Chelsea have done some wonderful business this transfer window but are looking for one more midfield option to add to the squad, and Aouar could be that!

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out, but Chelsea would be massive fools to not even make a move for the player, as he could offer Tuchel something different in the heart of midfield
