Aouar started playing soccer for Olympique Lyonnais Academy when he was 11 years old in 2009. In July 2016, he signed a three-year professional contract with Lyon and played his first game for the first team in February 2017, replacing Sergi Darder in a Europa League game against AZ Alkmaar.
He scored his first goal a week later against the same team. He was nominated for the Golden Boy award in July 2018.
In the 2017-2018 season, Aouar was given the symbolic number 8 shirt that was previously worn by Juninho. He scored a crucial goal against RB Leipzig in December 2019, helping Lyon to advance to the Champions League round of 16. They later beat Juventus and Manchester City but were defeated by Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.
Aouar is eligible to play for both France and Algeria at the international level. He was called up to the France under-17 national team in 2014 but only played one game.
He played for the France under-21 national team in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship in 2019. He was called up to the France national team in November 2019 but couldn’t join the team due to an injury. He made his France debut in a friendly game against Ukraine in October 2020.
After years of speculation, Aouar decided to change his international allegiance to Algeria in January 2023. However, he has not yet been called up to the Algerian national team.
