talkSPORT report that Liverpool are being linked with a summer move for 18-year old Lyon star Mohamed Bahlouli.
The young central midfield player has been making a name for himself this season in France’s youth league, playing for Lyons’ under-19 side, and his performances have begun to attract attention from further afield, with a number of European clubs tracking his progress. Liverpool are among the most prominent of his suitors, with a summer move to Anfield considered a real possibility.
Lyon are aware of the situation and are trying to convince Bahlouli to commit to the French club in the immediate future – however, the lure of the Reds may prove too strong for the player, although he is not considered ready for the Premier League just yet and would join their academy structure.
Bahlouli is a right-footed midfielder who is Lyon born and bred. He has an older brother Fares who currently is on the books of Ligue 1 side Lille.
