Houssem Aouar axed from Lyon squad with midfielder 'set to travel to England to complete Nottingham Forest transfer' | The Sun

NOTTINGHAM FOREST target Houssem Aouar has been left out of the Lyon squad for tonight's Ligue 1 clash.

The newly promoted Midlands side have agreed personal terms with the 24-year-old midfielder.

Get French Football News report that a move to the Premier League outfit could be imminent.

Although L’Equipe claim that Lyon dropping the Frenchman is a sporting decision, the timing of it seems to be more than a coincidence.

Aouar claimed to have been "seduced" during talks with Forest's management team.

He would be the SIXTEENTH addition for Steve Cooper's team in this transfer window.
