Bordeaux have €10m bid for Ibrahim Amadou rejected

Cash-strapped Ligue 1 side Lille have rejected a €10m from Bordeaux for captain and defensive player Ibrahim Amadou, according to L’Équipe.

Lille need to raise €25m in order to prevent the French Football financial watchdog, the DNCG, from automatically relegating the club to Ligue 2 on the grounds of accounting irregularities.

LOSC are hoping to sell Amadou to raise that money, with the aim of earning €20m from his sale, likely to the Premier League.
