Breaking News: Lyon Set to Sign Paul Akouokou – Latest Transfer Updates & Potential Left Winger Addition

2023-08-31 22:55:42

He is probably not the player that the Lyon supporters had dreamed of, and he was not even an initial target of the recruitment cell, but his profile pleased Laurent Blanc who therefore holds his number 6: Paul Akouokou is expected this Friday in Lyon to sign a 3-year contract with OL, which will pay nearly €3 million in the operation.

The 25-year-old Ivorian, under contract for another year in Spain, was not the priority of Lyon leaders, who tried to attract Argentinian international Guido Rodriguez until Thursday, and the player’s final refusal revealed via the L’Équipe website.

But Akouokou is a profile that the Rhone coach very much likes, who will therefore get his long-awaited player. An imbroglio between agents could nevertheless still derail this deal, even if the two clubs said they were confident this night. The midfielder will therefore arrive in Lyon this Friday, but his signature is not yet acquired.

One more winger?

In parallel with this inexpensive file, which therefore does not affect the entire budget remaining on the transfer window, OL could activate on a left winger on the last day of the market. The Largie Ramazani track (21 years old, June 2025, Almeria) has been reactivated by the Lyon cell, which is also following another player whose identity has not been filtered.
