As expected, Olympique Lyonnais and Feyenoord Rotterdam reached an agreement on Saturday for the transfer of left-back Tyrell Malacia for 15 million euros. The formalization should not be long in coming.
Malacia is going to land in the Rhne.
At the end of another failed season, Olympique Lyonnais does not want to waste time and is hyperactive at the start of the transfer window.
Boosted by the arrival of the new majority shareholder John Textor, the Gones are indeed about to sign their 4th recruit after the replacement goalkeeper Rmy Riou, the home scorer Alexandre Lacazette and the promising midfielder Johann Lepenant.
Feyenoord have already found their replacement
After having evoked on Friday an agreement almost completed with a few details to settle, the journalist Fabrizio Romano, who is authentic in the field of transfers, indeed announces this Saturday a total agreement between OL and Feyenoord Rotterdam for the arrival of the left side Tyrell Malacia. The 22-year-old Dutch international will cost his new club 15 million euros and commit for 5 years. Sign of the imminence of the deal, Romano adds that Feyenoord is about to recruit his replacement: the Batavian international U23 Ian Maatsen, returned to Chelsea after a loan from Coventry City.
Malacia, the strong man of the left?
With Malacia, OL have achieved a good result since Oranje had good odds after their successful performances until the final of the Europa League Conference this season. Several English stables, including Manchester United, were in the running, but the native of Rotterdam absolutely wanted to work under the orders of his compatriot Peter Bosz, who made the difference in this case.
Faced with recurring difficulties in the left lane in recent seasons, the Rhone club could well have found the profile that will make everyone agree. All that is missing is the return of midfielder Corentin Tolisso, currently free and in contact with the OL, and we could speak of a very successful start to the transfer window for Les Gones.
