Jean-Michel Aulas did not go there by four ways. Asked by Progress earlier this week, the president of OL assured that his club, which will pass the DNCG on June 29, will continue to invest in the transfer window. However, he acknowledged that the door would certainly open for some. “There will also be departures, because players want to leave. We will not give any indications beforehand, neither on the amounts, nor on the players because we are in a game with several people. ”

Avoid at all costs a new Memphis case
Once again without the Champions League, Lyon is preparing to be attacked for its best elements. At the end of the contract, Memphis Depay will join Barça for free. What JMA has not digested, which does not want more cases of this kind. The objective is therefore to extend Jason Denayer (25), free in 2022. While the discussions had started well, they calmed down after the non-qualification in C1. The Belgian press explains that the defender would not rule out a departure.
He could also take advantage of his exposure during the Euro to attract attention. Asked by Voetbal Magazine, Jesse De Preter, his agent, admitted he had touches: “Denayer receives offers from big teams, but he is under contract with Lyon, which also a high level team, for another year. He has all the cards in his hand. ” In a position of strength, Denayer can therefore extend, change air this summer, or even go free in a year. A solution that OL does not favor.
Desires elsewhere for some …
On the other hand, the door could open for Maxwel Cornet (24 years old). Still under contract for two years, the Ivorian benefits from an exit voucher this summer.

We discussed with him “. Loaned to Atlético de Madrid last winter, Moussa Dembélé (24) wants to stay with the Colchoneros as revealed by us. The Madrilenians, especially Diego Simeone and the locker room executives, also want to continue with the French.
But the price of the option to buy the player, 33.5 million euros, is considered too high by Atlético. Negotiations are continuing. Joachim Andersen (25) is also potentially leaving. After his good year at Fulham, the Dane caught the eye of several clubs. According to our information, Tottenham appreciates his profile and OL hope to sell him for around thirty million euros.
Solicitations for others …
The young Héritier Deyonge (19 years old), has touches in Belgium (Standard de Liège, Club Bruges) as well as in Italy (Fiorentina). Finally, OL will have to manage the demands for several elements.
