The transfer window is well underway for OL, with two recruits already made. And it’s not over for Jean-Michel Aulas, convinced that his club can still hit hard.
Very busy with the episode of the sale of the shares that several main shareholders have decided to put back on the market, Jean-Michel Aulas, who has just celebrated his 35th birthday at the head of Olympique Lyonnais, does not forget the daily bread of his club. And if usually, it’s the championship, in this month of June, it’s the transfer window. OL have already announced Alexandre Lacazette, and a second recruit has signed. This is Johann Lepenant, who arrived from SM Caen, where his consistency and activity impressed at only 19 years old. If the formalization of this transfer for around 6 million euros has not yet taken place, everything is complete and the contract has even already been initialed, says Jean-Michel Aulas. And this second recruit will not be the only one for OL, which intends to remain very active this summer.
Johann Lepenant has already signed for OL

You are Olympique Lyonnais, we are Olympique Lyonnais!

Asked by BeIN Sports on the sidelines of the final of the French basketball championship between Lyon-ASVEL and Monaco, the Lyon president sold dreams to supporters by announcing several files in progress. ” We announced a young player who is in the France Espoirs team, Lepenant. He signed very early. And we are currently negotiating three or four players who will come to strengthen the team with a lot of ambition next year, because last year was a bit of a missed season. We must therefore return to the highest as we have been used to every year for 25 years “, promised a Jean-Michel Aulas, not at all hampered in his ambitions by this season without the European Cup which is looming for his OL. It now remains to finalize these tracks in progress, but the optimism of the Lyon boss will certainly be contagious with OL followers, who want to believe in a more convincing second season under Peter Bosz.
