Lyon-based outlet Le Progrès report today that, with Brazilian midfielder Jean Lucas set to leave Lyon for Monaco, Thiago Mendes has also been placed on the club’s transfer list.
Les Gones director Juninho had on Sunday confirmed Jean Lucas’ departure, with the former Flamengo man’s transfer fee set to be in the region of €11m. The 23-year-old’s compatriot is also set to leave the club – negotiations for a move to Flamengo are currently stalling, but there is little doubt that Mendes is on the transfer list.
The Brazilian had been signed for €22m in 2019, having signed a four-year contract with Les Gones. Mendes had been one of the key players in Rudi Garcia’s Lyon side, but is now no longer in Peter Bosz’s plans for the team.
