Rachid Ghezzal: European football in England or a Lyon extension

Talks are expected to rumble on between Lyon and Rachid Ghezzal’s entourage over a contract extension after the player rejected an offer from Everton yesterday afternoon.

The reason that was given by Ghezzal to Everton was the lack of European football that their project was offering.

According to France Football, West Ham United continue to push to sign the player, and Arsenal are making discreet steps to position themselves for Ghezzal for a deadline day swoop if they fail to acquire other targets that they are currently pursuing.

A contract extension with a considerable wage rise or a move to an English side offering European football: that is what Ghezzal wants and it is also what he is going to get.
