Lyon poised to sign Cenk Özkaçar from Altay SK

L’Équipe report that Lyon are closing in on a deal to sign 19-year-old Turkish defender Cenk Özkaçar from Altay SK.

The deal has been negotiated by Head of Recruitment Bruno Cheyrou, who has convinced the player to sign a 5-year contract with Les Gones.

Should the teen complete the move, he is expected to be observed by manager Rudi Garcia for a few weeks upon arrival and then depending on the French tactician’s take on the player’s potential, he could be loaned straight back out.

A deal for the Turkish U21 international is poised to cost OL just under €2m.
