Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, has been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal all having been linked with the 22-year-old.
The 22-year-old capped off a wonderful season for Lyon with 9 goals and 9 assists.
Aouar is expected to make a move away from Lyon this summer, and Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, has backed the young midfielder to be a top player.
Ferdinand told BT Sport: “He [Aouar] provides the creativity in this team
“He’s a fabulous player to watch. He drives past people and then it’s about decision-making and the timing of the pass.
“He has it all. He reminds me of [former Arsenal and Manchester City star] Samir Nasri at times. He’s someone who can be a top player at one of the top clubs in Europe.”
Owen Hargreaves also spoke highly of the 22-year-old as he added: “Rio is right. He’s their best player, their most gifted player.
“To get nine goals and nine assists at 22… Everything he does is class. A lot of young players look like they’re rushing but he’s just calm and so good in possession.
“He’s the heart of that midfield.”
