While he has still not extended at OL, Rayan Cherki is the subject of a diligent courtship of Real Madrid. The Merengues want to recruit the young prodigy from Lyon but also another former member of the Lyon training center, the Niçois Amine Gouiri.
Recently returned to the lawns with OL, Rayan Cherki however worries all Lyonnais from a contractual point of view. Indeed, the young prodigy of almost 19 years has not yet extended his contract with the Gones, despite the fact that the operation was to be finalized at the beginning of the summer. Free of any contract in June 2023 if this were to continue, Cherki is closely followed by the major European clubs. The most active on the file remains Real Madrid. The Merengues have often done good business coming to the Rhône: Karim Benzema of course but also Mahamadou Diarra or more recently Ferland Mendy have brought satisfaction to Florentino Perez.
After Cherki, Amine Gouiri also interests Real
Real Madrid intends to take advantage of the precarious contractual situation of Rayan Cherki at OL to offer him this summer. The young Lyonnais has been listed as a potential recruit by the White House. However, he is not the only talent trained at OL to be targeted for the summer transfer window. OGC Nice striker Amine Gouiri is also in the sights of Madrid recruiters as revealed by journalist Ekrem Konur.

This aroused the interest of some big European teams, including PSG in particular. by Christophe Galtier. Real Madrid would be well ahead of everyone for Gouiri as well as for Cherki and prepare for the future with these 100% Lyon successors of Karim Benzema.
