Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Arkadiusz Milik’s “Little Brother” interview!
OL have already achieved a huge blow in the transfer window by managing to bring Alexandre Lacazette back. Happy to have finally been able to find his much desired striker, Peter Bosz is still waiting for reinforcements and is fully involved in the recruitment process alongside Vincent Ponsot and Bruno Cheyrou. The team therefore announces that the Dutchman is waiting for an experienced midfielder and a left-back, after the departures of Tanguy Ndombele and Emerson.
For the full-back position, Tyrell Malacia (Feyenoord) and Owen Wijndal (AZ) are targeted but are currently inaccessible for OL’s finances. The profile of Ridvan Yilmaz (Besiktas) is also very popular. In midfield, the great dream of Les Gones, and confirmed by Jean-Michel Aulas today at a press conference, is called Corentin Tolisso. But the game is far from won while the 2018 World Champion, still very attached to his training club, wishes to compete in the Champions League to be part of the selections for the 2022 World Cup. Returning to Lyon would thus be “an appeal solution “if he couldn’t find better. Johann Lepenant should soon be formalized while Moussa Sissoko would not be unanimous internally, where Jordan Veretout would be favored by the leaders.
Another position targeted by Bosz: that of winger. Despite negotiations for the extension of Rayan Cherki, the will would be to keep Tetê but the price demanded by Shakhtar Donetsk remains too high for the time being.
A wave of departure awaited!
Radius departures, the Rhone club should be active. Besides those already recorded Emerson, Ndombele and Denayer, Lucas Paqueta should not make old bones. While the desire to separate is mutual, the Gones are waiting for a good cash flow for a player bought for 20 million euros two years ago. His name has regularly been associated with Newcastle, where he could find a certain Bruno Guimarães.
In defense, Léo Dubois and Jérôme Boateng will not be selected, as will Tino Kadewere, Houssem Aouar and Thiago Mendes. A loan from the German for his last year of contract would even be studied to avoid paying his full salary. Finally, the Moussa Dembélé case is likely to give Lyon leaders headaches. At the end of the contract in a year, the former Celtic player would have every intention of going after it despite the return of Alexandre Lacazette and the interests of many clubs.
