OL Mercato: Always on the lookout for young talent to ensure its future, Olympique Lyonnais will formalize an important agreement this Friday.OL Mercato: Lyon will complete a partnership this FridayVery discreet last year on the transfer market, the he Olympique Lyonnais is ambitious this summer, on all fronts. After extending Maxence Caqueret and Anthony Lopes, then signing Alexandre Lacazette and Johann Lepenant, Les Gones saw a new investor land, the American John Textor. The owner of Botafogo should inject nearly 80 million euros this summer on the transfer window, enough to foresee a lot of madness on the part of the Rhone club, which wishes at all costs to draw a line under its failed season in the league. But Lyon’s ambitions do not stop there, since Jean-Michel Aulas is on the verge of closing a valuable agreement. With a view to unearthing promising young talents, OL will sign a partnership this Friday with the club of Lyon – La Duchère, resident of National 2. A veritable incubator of the Rhone region, the club chaired by Jean-Christophe Vincent will allow Les Gones to extend their network, particularly in terms of recruitment. As a reminder, the young team of Lyon – La Duchère had climbed this season to the quarter-finals of the Gambardella Cup. According to Le Progrès, another club was supposed to join the big OL family, GOAL FC, but discussions are currently at a standstill for a partnership. OL Mercato: Aulas wants to reconnect with the Lyon identityFaced with the various transfer window failures from last season (Shaqiri, Boateng, Da Silva), Jean-Michel Aulas and his team have decided to review their attack plans for the coming seasons. In the midst of crossing the desert on the sporting level, Olympique Lyonnais wants to regain its former glory, which had been its strength, the training center. Like players like Karim Benzema, Samuel Umtiti, Corentin Tolisso or even Alexandre Lacazette, the Gones want to surround themselves with young people trained in the Lyon region. “We will return to the DNA of the club. We have been working on it for several months with Vincent (Ponsot, director of football) and Bruno (Cheyrou, head of recruitment). The backbone will be Lyon with Antho (Lopes) in goal, (Castello) Lukeba in central defense, Maxence (Caqueret) in the middle and Alexandre (Lacazette) in front, ”Aulas announced at the start of the week during the presentation of John Textor.
