OL: Galatasaray in madness, two more targeted Lyonnais!

Léo Dubois arrived in Istanbul to sign up for Galatasaray, who have reached an agreement with OL for the transfer of the Frenchman.

Good news for Olympique Lyonnais, which had placed Léo Dubois on its list of transferable players during the summer transfer window. The former captain of OL and FC Nantes is not the only player invited to leave the Rhône this summer in order to reduce the number of staff and therefore reduce the club’s payroll. Houssem Aouar or Lucas Paqueta, who are among the players with high market value, are also pushed towards the exit. An observation also valid for Tino Kadewere, whose playing time will inevitably be very reduced with the return of Alexandre Lacazette and the desire of Moussa Dembélé to stay. Courted by Strasbourg, the Zimbabwean international is also targeted by Galatasaray, according to information from Turkish journalist Erdal Bozkurt.

Galatasaray interested in Kadewere and Mendes

After securing the services of Léo Dubois, the Istanbul club would like to continue shopping at Olympique Lyonnais and have therefore identified Tino Kadewere as a potential reinforcement in attack. Unleashed on the transfer market and very interested in several OL players, Galatasaray also has an eye on the situation of Thiago Mendes. On the other hand, it will be more difficult to convince Lyon to let the Brazilian go. And for good reason, Peter Bosz appreciates his profile and makes him a potential starter alongside Castelo Lukeba in central defense for the coming season. Proof that Olympique Lyonnais is counting on Thiago Mendes, the former defensive midfielder from Lille recently extended his contract in the capital of Gaul. This does not scare Galatasaray, who are determined to carry out intense negotiations to recover Kadewere and Thiago Mendes, after having tied up the transfer of Léo Dubois. Whatever happens, Jean-Michel Aulas and Vincent Ponsot have therefore not finished exchanging with their Turkish counterparts in the weeks to come.
