With only three months remaining on his deal, Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar is being pursued by a bevy of top clubs interested in acquiring the 24 year-old on a free transfer.

According to French outlet Footmercato, Milan are one of many clubs throughout Europe keen on signing the midfielder once his contract with the Ligue 1 giants expires after the season in June.

The one-time France international is widely expected to depart his boyhood club this summer where he’s spent the previous 14 years.

Beyond the Rossoneri, Aouar has drawn interest from Eintracht Frankfurt, Roma, Real Betis, Arsenal, and Manchester United.
