Olympique Lyonnais could well get their hands on two prime rookies in the days to come. But they would compensate for significant departures from the squad made available to Rudi Garcia.
The days leading up to the fateful date of October 5 will be decisive for theOlympique Lyonnais. The team chaired by Jean-Michel Aulas, deprived of the European Cup in 2020-2021, must do everything possible to return to the Champions League the following season. For that, Rudi Garcia must be able to rely on a strong and concerned squad, with only two competitions to go.
Depay and Aouar, are you ready?
But for now, the Rhone’s balance sheet is just one win in five Ligue 1 games played. We have to straighten the bar quickly, and to get back into the fight, the Gones may well seek to get rid of those who want elsewhere as quickly as possible. Among the three thorny cases (Moussa Dembele, Memphis depay, Houssem Aouar), at least one of them will be kept, the president has certified it.
Paqueta is 18 million euros
Two cases could in any case be settled very quickly, because in the direction of arrivals, two reinforcements seem to be announced on the side of Groupama Stadium. Long-standing rumor, a time cited on the side of Paris Saint Germain, Lucas Paqueta would have given his agreement to reinforce the Brazilian contingent of Gones. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, an agreement with theAC Milan would have been found, for a transfer fee of up to 18 million euros.
Slimani would arrive free
Moreover, if Memphis Depay again seems close to FC Barcelona, his successor could be Algerian international. Indeed, RMC Sport understands thatIslam slimani is a serious candidate for a signing at OL. Still under contract with Leicester city after a successful loan experience at theAS Monaco, the person concerned could be released from his engagement with the Foxes, and then join the Lyon group.
