Transfer market: Lorient hopes for Areola


One of the revelations of the first part of the Ligue 1 season could be loaned the goalkeeper from West Ham for the next 6

A world champion at FC Lorient?

Les Merlus, who are busy finding an off-centre striker and a center forward, are also looking for a goalkeeper to tackle this second part of the season with ambition.

According to information from the Team that we are able to confirm, the Morbihan club has set its sights on Alphonse Areola.

FC Lorient, who lost their Swiss goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo for several months, sent a six-month loan offer to West Ham for the international goalkeeper (5 caps) passed by PSG.

Since his arrival at the Hammers a year and a half ago, the Francilien who started football at Les Petits Anges has occupied a role of understudy.

This season, he has only been able to play two Premier League and six Europa League Conference games.

Even if the case may seem complex because of Areola's emoluments, Loïc Fery's club could find a financial package.

And the prospect of having playing time is interesting for the West Ham goalkeeper.

It would allow him to be a credible candidate to apply for a place at the next gathering of the Blues, in March.

A date all the more important as the cards will be reshuffled in the French hierarchy after the international retirements of Hugo Lloris and Steve Mandanda.

And the future number one, Mike Maignan, injured for several months in the left calf, has still not returned to competition.

Moffi leaving for OM

In addition, the 2nd top scorer in L1, Terem Moffi (12 goals), is courted by OM who have agreed with FC Lorient for a transfer of 15M€ plus bonuses and the transfer of Bamba Dieng.

The Nigerian striker was still leaning towards Nice in recent days but the situation could change.
