The TOP 5 files of the day that should not be missed

1. OM and Lorient agree to a Moffi-Dieng change

Olympique de Marseille is making progress on the Terem Moffi case. This Tuesday, the Marseille club reached an agreement with FC Lorient for the transfer of the Lorient striker against a sum of money and Bamba Dieng, says Foot Mercato. The Marseille management also has an agreement with the agent of the center forward of Les Hakes. However, the “yes” from the Nigerian international is still missing. But that’s not all, since the English club Everton is embedded in the file and would try to hijack the agreement between Lorient and Dieng, who would not be against the idea of ​​discovering the Premier League. Given the twists and turns in the case of the Senegalese international last summer, OM will have to be very careful…

2. Chelsea will return the charge for Gusto

Pressure is mounting on Olympique Lyonnais for Malo Gusto. As expected for several days, Chelsea has made an initial offer for the right side (around €20 million). Not a seller this winter, OL refused it but the Blues will not stop there and will formulate a new proposal estimated between 30 and 40 million euros, according to Foot Mercato. For his part, the French international Espoirs has already agreed on the conditions of a long-term contract with the 10th in the Premier League and is open to this transfer. Will Les Gones be able to resist?

3. Ajorque will leave Strasbourg!

After Adrien Thomasson, who left for Lens, Strasbourg will lose another important element of its workforce this winter. Indeed, L’Equipe says this Tuesday that striker Ludovic Ajorque will leave Alsace to join Mainz, Germany! The former Clermontois has already said goodbye to his teammates and is about to start a new chapter in his career with the 12th in the Bundesliga.

4. Lorient tries Areola!

In search of a goalkeeper following the injury of Yvon Mvogo, unavailable until the end of the season, FC Lorient is attacking Alphonse Areola. Les Merlus have sent West Ham a six-month loan offer for the former Parisian, L’Equipe revealed on Tuesday. For the French international, lacking playing time with the Hammers, a trap in Brittany would be a great opportunity to show off as the cards are being reshuffled in selection after the international retirements of Hugo Lloris and Steve Mandanda.

5. Lyon insist on Joao Gomes

Eager to strengthen their midfield, Olympique Lyonnais have started discussions to recruit Flamengo player Joao Gomes. Problem, despite a superior offer from Lyon (€17m + €2m bonus), the player would rather join the Premier League, where Wolverhampton offers €15m (+ €2m bonus). Faced with this situation, the new owner of OL, John Textor, decided to roll up his sleeves. Thus, as reported by the Brazilian media Globo, the American businessman went to the Ninho do Urubu training center to convince the player that a departure for France would be a better choice for his career. It remains to be seen whether his speech will be convincing enough to push Joao Gomes to settle down between Rhne and Sane.
