Lyon’s start to the campaign hasn’t been great and Sylvinho got sacked in the process. Now, the team is gradually improving and scaling up the standings of their Ligue 1. With that, they’re also hoping to better their squad, and that explains why they switched their attention to Spain.
The most important reason behind this move from the transport market is Memphis Depay’s crucial ligament tear that meant that the Dutchman will also miss Euro 2020, but also that the Ligue 1 side are needing assaulting reinforcements.
The Cameroon striker is your one expected to perform the job in Depay’s absence. He already played in Ligue 1, together with Angers, where he had two prolific seasons. That was just before the 27-year-old made a move to Villarreal, where he has six goals this season in less than 1000 minutes of La Liga soccer.
