Lille have found their striker on deadline day in the form of Eder on loan from Premier League side Swansea, according to La Provence and confirmed now by L’Équipe.
As a result, LOSC have given up on the potential signings of Newcastle’s Frenchman Emmanuel Rivière and Frankfurt striker Haris Seferovic. In negotiations for these two players, Lille encountered the same problem.
Frankfurt and Newcastle only wanted to sell their respective players, instead of loaning them. Lille did not have sufficient funds to complete a transfer for either individual.
