Lens set to sign Chicago Fire full-back Frankowski as Michelin leaves

La Voix du Nord report this evening that RC Lens full-back Clément Michelin is set to sign with Greek outfit AEK Athens. Having only just returned to France after taking part in the Olympic tournament which saw France knocked out at the group stage, the right-back has now travelled to Greece to wrap up the move.

Michelin had been the club’s starting right back in the year they were promoted, having arrived in 2019 from Toulouse, but was unable to displace Jonathan Clauss in the berth last season as the latter impressed throughout the campaign for Franck Haise’s men.

Lens are now looking to sign Polish international Przemysław Frankowski as his replacement, with the Chicago Fire man expected to arrive as early as tomorrow. The 26-year-old move will cost the Ligue 1 side an estimated €3m.
