Wolfsburg come close to meeting Lyon’s €20m asking price for Maxwel Cornet

Bundesliga side Wolfsburg last night made an improved bid for French winger Maxwel Cornet, an offer that has come very close to the €20m plus 30% sell-on percentage clause demands that Lyon were making, according to L’Équipe.

OL, for the moment, are blocking the transfer, because a major injury to starlet Amine Gouiri, which he suffered in reserve team action this week, would leave them short in terms of attacking options.

Lyon want to wait until Gouiri undergoes the necessary scans to determine how long he might be out of action for, before making a decision on whether or not to let Cornet go.
