While RC Lens is in a strong position to win its ticket to the Champions League, its good season is arousing the envy of some European leaders.
The hardest part is likely to start for the Lensois leaders. While RC Lens has had a historic season, which risks ending with a second qualifying place for the Champions League, the Sang et Or have attracted the attention of many European leaders.
We knew Seko Fofana and Brice Samba very coveted, but unsurprisingly the same is true of Loïs Openda, author of 19 goals in Ligue 1 for his first season in Pas-de-Calais. To believe the Gazzetta dello Sport, the young Belgian striker would indeed be the recruitment priority of AC Milan, in search of a new number 9.
For the Milanese leaders, a check for 25 million euros could be enough to attract the Red Devil, yet under contract with the artesian club until June 2027. A sum that risks making Lens wink, who had recruited the young striker 23-year-old for 10 million euros last summer.
