English Premier League outfit Chelsea are now expected to face rivalry from Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona in their bid to land French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon star Houssem Aouar in the coming summer transfer window.
Houssem Aouar has impressed so far this season having scored six goals for the French side and handed five assists in 33 appearances across all competitions.
The West London outfit has been on the radar of the star player right from the last winter transfer window but a deal failed to fall through with the English Premier League outfit failing to have their bid submitted until it was closed.
With the Blues boss already having the likes of Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic, there is a need to add more strength to the team ahead of the coming season.
The West London outfit have also lost Spanish star Cesc Fabregas to French Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco as he made a move in the last January winter window.
However, it is unclear if the Blues boss will still remain in charge of Chelsea team as he could be sacked but suggestions are that the team will not give up on Houssem Aouar in the coming summer.
