The Lyonnais want aggressiveness in defense? They will be served.
While Laurent Blanc has repeatedly called for recruits, particularly in midfield and defense since his arrival at OL, it seems that his wishes have been heard by the club’s leaders. According to information from The Team, Lyon have agreed with Dejan Lovren, who has even already passed medical examinations, for a signing this winter. The will of the club would be to install it alongside Castello Lukeba in central hinge.
All that remains is to reach an agreement with Zénith Saint-Petersburg, where Lovren is still under contract for the next six months, and with whom OL could agree on a small transfer fee. It would therefore be a return home for the one who has already worn the Gones tunic between January 2010 and June 2013. At 33, the Croatian comes out of a successful World Cup in Qatar where the Vatreni dropped out a nice third place. Note that, again according to The Teamthe other players targeted for this position by Bruno Cheyrou were called Alexander Djiku (Strasbourg) and Çalar Söyüncü (Leicester).
And why not call Cris back to reform the 2010-2011 hinge?
