L’Équipe report that Spanish giants Real Madrid made contact to sign 19-year-old Lyon striker Amine Gouiri last month.
OL had hoped to send the teenager out on loan in January, with Nîmes and Le Havre having made approaches, but he refused, insistent that he wants to make a name for himself in the club’s 1st team or to leave permanently.
Los Blancos made an approach about possibly signing the French youth international, but ultimately did not follow it up with a formal bid. Gouiri has recently taken up a new agent, Alain Migliaccio, who also represents a certain Zinedine Zidane, manager of? Real Madrid.
