Lyon enquire for Maximilian Wöber (RB Salzburg)

Foot Mercato report that Lyon have made an initial enquiry over the possible summer availability of 22-year-old Austrian international central defender Maximilian Wöber of RB Salzburg.

Lyon Sporting Director Juninho is understood to be a particular fan of the player, who despite his tender age has already played for Ajax, Sevilla and Rapid Vienna.

Praised for his anticipation, decisiveness with interceptions & the quality of his heading game, Wöber has installed himself at the heart of a RB Salzburg side that surprised many in the Champions’ League.

Lyon are working towards the possible departure of Brazilian central defender Marcelo, whose current deal expires in June 2021. It remains to be seen whether or not Juninho can build a consensus at Lyon board level around the Austrian, who would likely cost in the region of €15m.
