Olympique Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar has revealed that he rejected a chance to join Liverpool before signing his first professional contract.
Speaking to Planete Lyon, Aouar stated the reason he refused to sign on with Jurgen Klopp.
“Before I signed my first professional contract with Lyon in July 2016, Liverpool were interested in me.
I thought about it hard with those close to me on the decision I needed to take, what was better for my progression.
And I opted for Lyon because it is the club of my heart and my aim was to succeed here, in my city”.
