Lyon and Lille keen on FC Basel forward Edon Zhegrova

As reported by Foot Mercato, both Lille and Lyon are interested in signing FC Basel’s Kosovan forward Edon Zhegrova.

Having not quite lived up to high expectations in Switzerland after a loan in Belgium with Genk, Lille, in need of a replacement for Jonathan Ikone who left for Fiorentina this month, are hoping to revitalise the player’s talent and LOSC lead the chase to sign the 22-year-old.

AC Milan, PSG and Barcelona were all interested in Zhegrova as a teenager and he recently came close to joining for Dijon in France. Lyon, however, look to be Lille’s main competitors as they try to strengthen their attack this month after a slow start to the season with Zhegrova represented by the brother of Lyon forward Xherdan Shaqiri.
