Lyon set to sign Brest midfielder Romain Faivre

Journalist Sacha Tavolieri has this afternoon confirmed L’Équipe‘s reports that Lyon are set to complete the signing of Brest midfielder Romain Faivre, in the wake of Newcastle-bound Bruno Guimarães’ departure.

The transfer fee is expected to amount to around €14m for the attacking midfielder, who had been the subject of strong links to Milan last summer.

The former French youth international had been in Brittany since the summer of 2020, when he joined from Monaco. He has since emerged as one of the brightest creative talents in the league, leading to past interest from the Rossoneri, as well as Paris Saint-Germain.
