Alassane Plea could well return to Ligue 1 this summer where his training club Olympique Lyonnais greatly appreciates him.
As we know, Peter Bosz expressly requested two reinforcements on his arrival at Olympique Lyonnais: a goalkeeper (negotiations are underway with Ajax for André Onana) and a striker. For this last post, few names had come out so far. The team unveils this Friday one of the tracks followed.
And he is an elder of the house! According to the sports daily, Alassane Plea (28) – OL property from 2009 to 2014 – appears on the shelves of Gones to strengthen their offensive sector this summer. The tricolor international (1 cape) from Borussia Mönchengladbach particularly appeals to the new coach of OL, who was able to observe him closely when he was officiating in Germany.
Rennes also on the spot
After three seasons spent at Gladbach (28 goals in 90 Bundesliga appearances), the striker, under contract until June 2023, has an exit voucher for this summer, set at € 15 million, explains the publication. The Germans would prefer to lose the latter rather than Marcus Thuram (23), who arrived in the summer of 2019 from Guingamp.
OL are therefore warned. The residents of Groupama Stadium also know that they will have to deal with competition from Crystal Palace, where Patrick Vieira was recently inducted as manager, and Stade Rennais, which inquired about him while Mbaye Niang (26), requested by Venezia, is clearly on the start.
