Signature : Maxwel Cornet prolonge à l’OL jusqu’en 2023
Olympique Lyonnais is delighted to announce the extension of Maxwel Cornet's contract for two additional seasons, until 30 June 2023.

After arriving at OL from Metz during the January 2015 winter transfer window, Maxwel Cornet signed a five-year deal before extending it for the first time in July 2015.

Soon to turn 23 years old, the Ivory Coast international (15 caps, four goals), is now contracted to the club for the next four seasons, having already made 179 first-team appearances (41 goals). This includes 129 in the league and 32 in the UEFA Champions League.

Olympique Lyonnais is delighted with the long-term commitment of Maxwel Cornet, following similar recent announcements regarding Maxence Caqueret, Leo Dubois and Anthony Lopes.


Juninho : "He's a young player who brings a lot to the side. He finished last season very well. We trust his qualities. He is very powerful, technical and fast. He deserves this extension. It's up to him to fight now."

 

Maxwel Cornet : "I'm very happy to continue my adventure with Olympique Lyonnais. This club has given me a lot. It was important for my development to continue here. I have to repay this faith in me by performing well in every game. I want to win trophies. We will work to achieve that."
