With the Ligue 1 outfit having missed out on European football next season, they are expected to make player sales during the next transfer window.
That will likely result in clubs making an approach for Aouar, who has frequently been linked with a switch to a bigger club having starred for the French team in recent seasons.
While Manchester City are regarded as long-term admirers, L'Equipe says that Juventus are also considering a bid for the playmaker.
Given their self-imposed wage cap, any deal may be dependent on at least one high-profile name departing the Serie A leaders in the coming months.
Aouar still has three years left on his contract, ensuring that Lyon do not have to accept a cut-price fee for his services. body check tags ::
