Olympique Lyonnais is pleased to announce that it has taken up the purchase option for forward Karl Toko Ekambi, 27, from Villarreal (Spain).

The Cameroonian international has signed a four-year contract with the Rhone club.

This taking of the purchase option follows a loan deal that was agreed in January 2020. It amounts to € 11.5 million to which can be added a maximum of € 4 million in incentives as well as a sell-on clause of 15 % on a possible future transfer (50% if the transfer takes place before September 15, 2020).

Since his arrival at Olympique Lyonnais, Karl Toko Ekambi (22 caps for Cameroon) has scored 2 goals and added 1 assist in 8 Ligue 1 matches. He is eligible to play the Coupe de la Ligue final against PSG and the return leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 against Juventus in August.

The permanent arrival of Karl Toko Ekambi confirms the ambition of Olympique Lyonnais to give itself the means to be at the highest level possible next season.
