Will we one day see Jean Lucas in the OL jersey? Well, it’s not won, far from it; Arrived two years ago in the luggage of Juninho against 7 M €, the Brazilian midfielder has never really been part of the plans in Lyon. Sylvinho quickly left and Rudi Garcia didn’t really trust him. After a year and a half without playing or almost, the player ended up being loaned to Stade Brestois.
A mixed experience even if the playing time gained was beneficial to him. As capable of shining on an action as of going through half a match like a ghost, Jean Lucas (22) nevertheless actively participated in maintaining the Breton club in the elite (16 matches for 11 starts in Ligue 1 , 3 assists) and maintains its rating in the transfer market. A lot of French clubs are interested.
Monaco is preparing an offer
This is what interests us today because according to information from The team, AS Monaco would very much like to bring him to the Rock for next season. The recent third in the championship would like to recruit the Brazilian to integrate him into the rotation of a workforce, of which Florentino Luis will no longer be part from June 30. The latter will return to Benfica who had loaned him. It must therefore be replaced.
Always adept at trading, Monaco has spotted the former Flamengo and sees in him an interesting potential. A first offer should even be drawn in the coming days. OL would prefer to sell Thiago Mendes, with a big salary, but an offer of over € 10 million for Jean Lucas would be carefully studied. Peter Bosz is counting on him however but Kovac appreciates the volume of play of the midfielder, who is seduced at the idea of ”discovering” the C1. With OL, he had only played 3 minutes of play in October 2019.
