Jean-Michel Aulas : « Joachim Andersen est arrivé à Lyon »
OL's president and sporting director Juninho took advantage of Youssouf Koné's introductory press conference to give an update on the team's transfer market activities.


"Joachim Andersen arrived on a private plane with his family. He is talking with Florian Maurice. My goal in bringing Juni on board was to leave him satisfied with the transfer window. But we are not yet at the end of what we want to do. One thing is certain, we didn't miss anything that seemed essential to Juni. Regarding Anthony Lopes, we agreed on his extension. All that's left is to reach an agreement with his agents.



Andersen is an incredible player. His tactical ability and his qualities will help us. We hope to announce his arrival soon once the negotiations are finalized. Until the end of August we risk losing more players, but with the many arrivals we've started building a complete squad.

Regarding Nabil Fekir, we want to convince him to continue on this adventure, even though it will be difficult. Today he is in Tignes and he's working despite a small adductor injury. 

As for Lucas Tousart, I want to say that I misspoke when I arrived. He has a very interesting profile, especially in the 4-3-3 formation. He has many qualities. He is very respected here. We really do rely on him."
