On transfer deadline day, Lyon acquired the free transfer of former Bayern Munich centre back Jerome Boateng. Boateng, 32, was unable to extend his contract at the Allianz Arena, and the former Manchester City midfielder will now play in France after ten trophy-laden years in Germany.
In addition, despite interest from Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Real Madrid, top player Houssem Aouar appears certain to stay at the club, according to Sky Sport Italy. Fabrizio Romano, a reporter for Fabrizio Romano, stated that the playmaker will remain at Lyon on deadline day.
Arsenal had been a long-time admirer of the French midfielder and had made multiple approaches for him last summer, but the Gunners decided to buy Thomas for £45 million instead.Partey
Spurs also inquired about the availability of Lyon’s 23-year-old midfielder, who has scored 17 goals for the French club in the last two years.
