Lyon President Jean Michel Aulas has confirmed to L’Équipe that OL are in advanced negotiations with AS Roma over the signing of French defender Mapou Yanga Mbiwa.
Aulas had the following to say on the matter:
“The discussions with AS Roma are well advanced. We are waiting to continue to talk with them tomorrow morning (today). It is one of our approaches that really interests us because of the value of the boy who is right footed. International players who have quality and who are available are a rarity. Until a deal is wrapped up, we are not going to affirm anything. But we hope to enter into the final stages of negotiations on Monday or Tuesday. A fee of €9m? It might be a bit more.”
