The start of the Lyon campaign was not great and Sylvinho was fired in the process. Now the team is slowly improving and moving up the Ligue 1 rankings. As a result, they are also trying to improve their team, which is why they have turned their attention to Spain.
According to a report by France Football, Lyon are expected to sign Karl Toko Ekambi from Villarreal in a deal worth 20 million euros. The main reason for this change in the transfer market is the crucial rupture of the Memphis Depay ligaments, which means that the Dutchman will lose Euro 2020, but also that the Ligue 1 team needs reinforcements.
The Cameroonian striker is expected to do the job in Depay's absence. He has already played in Ligue 1 with Angers, where he had two prolific seasons. That was just before the 27-year-old moved to Villarreal, where he has six goals this season in less than 1000 minutes of League football.
