OL will animate the transfer window this winter in order to redress its sports situation. 12th in Ligue 1, the Gones need to strengthen a workforce, which is also facing a lot of injuries (Dubois, Reine-Adélaïde, Depay, etc). They notably targeted a midfielder.
According to RMC, the French club inquired about Etienne Capoue (31 years old). Holder for 4 ½ years in Watford, the international (7 caps, 1 goal), who is under contract until 2022, should not budge this winter. The Hornets are fighting to keep their place in the Premier League (19th after 19 days) and have categorically refused to OL. The Lyonnais leaders still pursue this track without much optimism and have already launched other reflections.
