Slimani mentioned again in Lyon, Rennes who clings to his nugget or Diego Costa on the departure of Atlético: find all the information of the transfer window for this Tuesday, December 29, 2020.
OL without Memphis but with Slimani in January?
Everything suggests that Memphis Depay will not finish the season at Olympique Lyonnais. Admittedly, FC Barcelona seems less and less eager to break his (small) piggy bank for the 26-year-old Dutch striker, but it is now or never for OL to recover money on his sale, him which is at the end of the contract next June. According to Foot Mercato, sports director Juninho has already anticipated this scenario. He would have relaunched the track leading to Islam Slimani, already announced very close to OL last summer. His dashing debut in Ligue 1 in 2019-20 with Monaco (9 goals and 7 assists in 18 matches) had convinced. But it is impossible to come to a financial agreement with the Leicester player, who has only played 19 minutes with the Foxes’ first team this season. The Algerian international (32) would negotiate an amicable termination of his contract in order to be able to bounce back elsewhere. Lyon would be all the more motivated to recover Slimani the space of 6 months after the fracture of the arm of Moussa Dembélé, who should miss at least all the month of January.

Saint-Étienne does not let go of Mohamed
The other club in the region is also in dire need of offensive reinforcements. According to France Football, AS Saint-Étienne submitted several offers to Zamalek SC for Mostafa Mohamed. The Egyptian international striker (23) had already caught the eye of LOSC and Fenberbahce last summer, but no club had met Zamalek’s demands. Its price would fluctuate between 4 and 5 million euros, while ASSE rose to 3 million. If the player would have a preference for the Greens, FC Nantes but also the Portuguese club SC Braga would give him soft eyes.
Rennes: young Rutter has suitors
A promising player from the Rennes training center, Georginio Rutter did not wait for his Champions League penalty goal against Sévillle FC (1-3) to stand out. At only 18 years old, the striker called up for the U19 of the France team stirs up envy, as reported The team. French and English clubs, but also Sevilla FC, Juventus and Napoli have ticked his name. If he is so interesting this winter, it is because he is … at the end of his contract at Rennes. If he does not rule out prolonging in Brittany, Rutter would ask to be convinced of the Rennes sporting project in order to see it as a possible axis of progress for him.

Zidane won’t let Isco leave Real mid-season
The Madrid daily AS lingered on Isco’s situation at Real Madrid, with a lot of information to the key. The 28-year-old attacking midfielder is not in the background of his coach, Zinédine Zidane, who left him on the bench in 5 of the 6 Champions League matches this season. Isco would claim his departure, but Zidane, worried about the risk of injury and the lack of solutions in this area of play, would rule out the sale of the Spaniard during the winter transfer window. An exit voucher would be granted to him next summer, and Isco has already chosen his destination: Sevilla FC, where he would find the coach under which he shone in Malaga, Julen Lopetegui. Real would like to draw between € 15 and € 20m from Isco, linked to the club until June 2022.

Atlético have two targets to replace Diego Costa
The vagueness reigns around Diego Costa, who would have asked Atlético de Madrid to terminate his contract for “family reasons” according to the Spanish press. In any case, a departure of the striker, who has only played 7 games this season due to injuries, is more than being considered. No player will be recruited to replace him until his departure is recorded, but Marca indicates that the track leading to Arkadiusz Milik is more active than ever. The Polish center-forward (26) was due to leave Naples last summer, and Victor Osimhen was even recruited to succeed him. But the domino game did not take place and Milik got stuck in Naples, where he has not played since August. If it would be a bit expensive for Atlético, Marca explains that a discount deal could be found with Napoli, where Milik is at the end of his contract, otherwise the player would risk joining Juventus for free next summer. On the side of the Cadena Ser, we confirm the price of Milik is too high for the Colchoneros, but the latter have already contacted another player: Loren Moron. After 10 goals in La Liga last season, the Spaniard (26) no longer shines at Real Betis. The Sevillian club are reportedly considering loaning him out until the end of the season for € 2m, with an option to buy at € 8m.
