L’Équipe report that Lyon have this afternoon concluded an agreement with Athletico Paranaense to sign 22-year-old Brazilian defensive midfielder Bruno Guimarães.
The two clubs now need to put this agreement into writing and OL need to agree final contractual details with the player and meet his salary demands.
RMC Sport reported earlier this morning that OL had accelerated negotiations to sign Guimarães, hinting that Les Gones had overcome Athletico Paranaense’s demands to retain some of the economic rights to the player by instead offering them a sizeable sell-on fee percentage clause.
Final steps, but OL are closing in on their second signing of the January window. The fee is believed to be €25m.
