Aouar: ‘Happy to stay at Lyon’

Olympique Lyonnais star Houssem Aouar, who was heavily linked with Juventus and Arsenal in the summer, says he has no regrets about his stay at the club.

“I am happy, this is my city and this my club,” Aouar told Telefoot while on International duty with France.

“I am proud to represent this club, I have so much motivation to make a great season.

“We made a choice, I’m happy to stay here. Aulas and Juninho convinced me to stay in Lyon.”

The Ligue 1 side reportedly requested €50m to let the player leave in the summer but neither Juventus nor Arsenal met the French club’s huge economic demands.

Aouar, 22, made his senior France debut earlier this week playing 59 minutes in Les Blues’ 7-1 win against Ukraine.
