Speaking to reporters today ahead of Lyon’s Coupe de la Ligue semi-final clash with Lille, boss Rudi Garcia refused to deny that Cameroonian international Karl Toko Ekambi will imminently join OL on loan with a €20m obligation to buy.
The Villarreal man underwent a medical with Lyon this morning, according to sources contacted by Get French Football News.
Garcia reiterated the importance of signing players in attack this month, despite the recent rise to prominence of 16-year-old winger Rayan Cherki:
“We need quality attacking players and he is one of them. If we can close a deal with a player with the same level of talent, that would be very good.”
