OL are coming off an oh so disappointing season. With a sad eighth place in the Ligue 1 standings, the Rhone club will not play in any European competition next season. While Jean-Michel Aulas is looking for investors, the sports management is working hard to offer new weapons to Peter Bosz.
Alexandre Lacazette should thus make his return to Lyon. The child of the club, free of any contract following his departure from Arsenal, should even be formalized during the week. A reinforcement of experience and weight for the Lyonnais, who are precisely looking to concoct a workforce based on confirmed players but also hopefuls with high potential. Hence this interest in Johann Lepenant, the Caen midfielder.
A 5 year contract
As indicated The Team, it’s closed. OL have beaten other interested clubs, such as OM and Monaco, and will afford the 19-year-old. An agreement was reached with the Norman formation for a transfer slightly exceeding 6 million euros, bonus included, when the player only had one year left on his contract. The Caennais also have a fairly low percentage on the capital gain on the resale of the player.
The principal concerned will sign a five-year contract with Olympique Lyonnais, and will therefore be the club’s first or second summer recruit, depending on the timing of the announcement of the return of Alexandre Lacazette. One thing is certain: on the side of Lyon, we have prepared this transfer window in advance and we intend to build a workforce allowing Peter Bosz to find Europe quickly.
