Lyon director Juninho confirms sale possible for Man City target Aouar

Lyon sporting director Juninho has admitted Houssem Aouar could leave the club this summer.

Manchester City and Juventus have been linked with the 22-year-old central-midfielder.

Asked about Aouar's future by RMC Sport, the Lyon chief responded: "Houssem Aouar? When you have great players in the squad, it is quite logical that other bigger teams with greater economic power come to seek the players.

"There is a risk of losing important players. If we lose important players, I have already spoken with the president, we will have the right to balance the workforce."
