A year after Corentin Tolisso and Alexandre Lacazette, another former Lyon player could return to OL.
If Olympique Lyonnais had a generally disappointing season, the returns of Corentin Tolisso and especially Alexandre Lacazette were a success. What undoubtedly give ideas to the leaders of Lyon.
To believe Sport, OL would indeed now think of bringing back Samuel Umtiti, long lost at Barça and completely found in Lecce this season. However, the tricolor world champion, under contract until June 2026, is not part of the Catalan club’s plans and Les Gones hope to take advantage of the windfall.
The Lyon leaders would be ready to make an offer around four million euros to bring back their former player, whom they had sold for 25 million euros. The person concerned has already clearly opened the door to a return. “Lately we were talking about it, I would really like to play with him again before the end of my career. Afterwards, it’s too early to talk about it, but yes for me Lecce is a springboard. Everyone thought I was dead, but I knew I was coming here to bounce back and go higher.” he thus reacted to this idea.
