Houssem Aouar has signed a new five-year contract with Lyon, the Ligue 1 club have confirmed.
Lyon midfielder Aouar enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in 2017-18, scoring seven goals across 44 appearances in all competitions to prompt speculation linking him with Liverpool and Barcelona.
And the 20-year-old, who has progressed through Lyon's renowned academy since joining the club in 2009, has now penned a new deal until June 2023.
OL have been tipped to sell Nabil Fekir to Liverpool, with Aouar expected to be the France international's long-term replacement in the team.
Like Fekir, Aouar has come through the club's youth ranks and was born in the Rhone city.
Bruno Genesio's side finished third in Ligue 1 last season, securing a return to the Champions League.
