Lyon interested in Feyenoord’s Tyrell Malacia

Foot Mercato are reporting that, in the search to replace Emerson (27), who looks unlikely to stay in France next season, Olympique Lyonnais have turned to Dutch left-back Tyrell Malacia (22). 

Although Emerson last week expressed a desire to stay at Lyon beyond the current season, Foot Mercato are reporting that he will return to his parent club, Chelsea, once he completes this season. 

In need of a left-back, Lyon have turned their eyes to Feyenoord’s Malacia, who impressed on Thursday night against Marseille, although no offer has yet been made. The left-back slot is one that the side are urgently looking to strenghten, and they have also identified Stade Reims’ Ghislain Konan (26), who will be a free agent, as a potential candidate. 

Malacia has an attacking profile, and has recorded four assists and one goal in the Eredivisie this season. He also has three caps for the Netherlands national team.
