Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar: Am I auditioning for Man City move...?

Olympique Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar insists tonight's clash with Champions League opponents Manchester City is no audition.

Aouar goes into the game being linked with City and Juventus after OL sports chief Juninho admitted he could be sold this summer.

Asked about trying to impress City boss Pep Guardiola, the midfielder shrugged: “A job interview no no, but it's obviously always flattering to hear my name associated with such teams.

"To be completely honest, I find it a bit inappropriate to talk about my case before such an important game. I am 100% focused on Olympique Lyonnais for the moment, it is a very important game and very very good to play."
