Ellyes Skhiri interesting Lyon as a Bruno Guimarães replacement

As reported by Foot Mercato, Lyon are on the lookout for a direct replacement for Newcastle-bound central midfielder Bruno Guimarães.

OL are interested in several options but chief among them is Cologne, and former Montpellier, midfielder Ellyes Skhiri – who is currently away with Tunisia at the AFCON.

After an excellent season so far in the Bundesliga, Skhiri would offer increased solidity to the OL midfield group lacking in more defensively minded players outside Thiago Mendes. The 26-year-old Skhiri is under contract in Germany until 2023.
