​Lyon star Depay: Aouar & I want to play for top three club

Lyon star Memphis Depay suggests Houssem Aouar and himself wish to leave the club.

The Netherlands star almost joined Barcelona in the summer, but a transfer never materialised.

Aouar was linked to Arsenal and Juventus, but no serious bids arrived for him either.

Depay feels both of them have the quality to play for a club that is among the top three in the world.

But he did suggest he wanted to win Ligue 1 with Lyon before leaving.

"We know we play for a very big club but we want to go to one of the top three clubs in the world," he told Canal+.

"Then you will see Houssem, he will get 10 times better. For me, it's the same.

"It would mean everything to me to win the Ligue 1 title with Houssem Aouar, the team and the president."
