With the possibility facing Lyon next month whereby they might lose Yacine Benzia and Clinton N’Jie to the African Cup of Nations, it looks like Les Gones might be very short of attacking cover come the month of January.
According to Le Progrès, Lyon are indeed in the market for an attacker. While the local publication is unable to cite any names of potential targets at present, Lyon manager Hubert Fournier confirmed this morning in a press conference that they might be active in the forthcoming window:
“We are not going to recruit for the sake of recruiting. We will have a look around and remain vigilant.”
