Mercato: the departure of Guimaraes is accelerating, a darling of RC Lens to replace him?

Zapping But! Football Club OL: the figures of Depay’s career with Les Gones

For a club which was to experience an end to the white transfer window this winter, OL are more agitated than expected. And for good reason: the imminent departure of Bruno Guimaraes from Newcastle has changed the game. According to Sky Sport, the two teams have finally agreed on the transfer of the Brazilian midfielder.

Amount of the operation: €40m plus bonuses of around €10m and remote medical examination today (the player is currently in the Brazilian selection). While the Brestois Romain Faivre is still mentioned to be recruited in the event of departure, it will then be a question for OL of finding a replacement in Guimaraes and concluding the deal in 48 hours.

Zorgane and Savanier appeal to OL

According to L’Équipe, it will not be Clément Grenier (31 years old). As mentioned last night, the recruitment unit, on the other hand, observes profiles abroad such as those of Ellyes Skhiri (Cologne, 26 years old)… or Adem Zorgane (Charleroi, 22 years old). For the latter, the sports daily specifies that it is “a very complicated file to carry out”, the player being in particular tracked for months by RC Lens for an arrival this summer.

Finally, we learn that Peter Bosz is very fond of Montpellier’s Téji Savanier, whom he discovered when he arrived in Ligue 1. But it will be almost impossible for OL to attract captain Pailladin (30) this winter, whose the MHSC absolutely does not wish to separate. The player also has a proposal for a two-year contract extension in his hands, which he has not yet signed.

to summarize

If Olympique Lyonnais is becoming more and more discreet about a possible departure of Bruno Guimaraes to Newcastle on this winter transfer window, his replacement would be about to be identified: Adem Zorgane, followed by RC Lens.
