While several strikers are leaving OL in recent days, Lyon is targeting a former Ligue 1 star to strengthen its attack.
It is not certain that the winter mercato of OL will ease the tensions between the club and its fans. Since January 1st, Olympique Lyonnais has only completed one arrival, that of Dejan Lovren, and the Gones are in the process of separating themselves from several offensive elements.
Already completely lost in the championship, the OL is next to the plate on this winter mercato, while there are only a few days left to try to save the furniture. In order to fill the gaps left by Karl Toko-Ekambi, Tetê and Romain Faivre, Lyon’s leaders are on the track of Wilson Isidor, the former Stade Rennais’ nugget. However, the 22-year-old striker prefers the project of FC Lorient, and is not really excited about the idea of coming to OL this winter.
The Gones have also positioned themselves on a former star of Ligue 1, more precisely of OGC Nice, and who piled up goals with the Aiglons. But the answer of the former striker of the Gym was without appeal.
OL Mercato : Alassane Pléa packs up the Olympique Lyonnais
As revealed by Foot Mercato this Friday afternoon, the OL leaders have tried to bring Alassane Pléa back to the French league. Currently at Borussia Monchengladbach, the former OGC Nice player is the third best passer in the German championship, and according to the media, he has categorically refused the advances of the OL for an arrival this winter.
This is not the first refusal of the Gones in January, since the Brazilian midfielder Joao Gomes has also declined the Lyon offer, preferring to join Wolverhampton in the Premier League. The period experienced by the club is extremely complicated, so much so that few players have the great desire to land in the Rhone.
