Memphis Depay being on the departure of Lyon, Juninho thinks of Jérémie Boga, the player of Sassuolo, to come and strengthen the attack of OL even if it will not be post for post.
Olympique Lyonnais will discover life without Memphis Depay from next season, the Dutch striker coming to the end of his 4 years in the capital of the Gauls. To replace him, Jean-Miche Aulas and Juninho will have to work hard, because it is obvious that the former Mancunian has contributed a lot to OL even if everything has not been perfect. However, L’Equipe explains this Sunday that the side of the Lyon leaders we do not necessarily want to recruit a center forward, considering that several players in the current squad have this profile, namely Moussa Dembélé, who will return from Atlético Madrid, Islam Slimani or even Karl Toko Ekambi and Tino Kadewere. It is therefore towards the sides that OL are looking and that is why the Rhone staff are paying close attention to Jérémie Boga, Sassuolo’s Ivorian international. The 24-year-old left-winger, who joined Chelsea at a young age before a loan to Rennes in the 2014-15 season, is clearly on Lyon’s shelves.
This season, Jérémie Boga is contributing to Sassuolo’s good year in Serie A, even though he was sidelined for several games in 2021 with a thigh problem. With a year from the end of his contract, the forward could obviously follow his current coach, Roberto de Zerbi, as the latter is also cited as a candidate for the post of Olympique Lyonnais coach next season. According to the sports daily, in addition to Jérémie Boga, Juninho obviously has tracks in South America, the usual hunting ground of the Brazilian sporting director of OL, but there no name has yet been leaked.
