Transfert de Jean Lucas à l’AS Monaco
Olympique Lyonnais announces the sale of their midfielder Jean Lucas to Monaco for a fee of €12M, including €1M in bonuses, as well as a 15% sell-on clause.

Arriving in June 2019 from Flamengo for €8M, the Brazilian midfielder played 25 matches across all competitions with Olympique Lyonnais (3 goals) before being loaned to Brest, without an option to buy, for the second half of the 2020/2021 season. As soon as he returned to the club when the first team reconvened on July 1, Jean Lucas expressed to the club's hierarchy his desire to join AS Monaco.

Olympique Lyonnais, with many midfielders currently in their squad, have acceded to the request of Jean Lucas, whose departure frees up an additional non-EU place in Peter Bosz' squad.

OL wish Jean Lucas the best of luck at AS Monaco where, at 23, will be starting his third season in Ligue 1.
