Less than a week before the end of the winter transfer window, Jean-Michel Aulas responded, on social networks, to all the rumors circulating around Olympique Lyonnais, and concerning in particular Rayan Cherki and Malo Gusto.

Lyon is at the heart of many rumors less than a week from the end of the winter transfer window. And they concern Rayan Cherki, courted by the PSG, Malo Gusto, announced at Chelsea, Karl Toko Ekambi, left for Rennes, or even Romain Faivre, desired by Lorient. Faced with all these allegations, Jean-Michel Aulas wanted to respond and clarify the situation of each of these players. Starting with Rayan Cherki. While the capital club would have made the international Espoirs its priority to strengthen its attack and replace Pablo Sarabia, who left for Wolverhamtpon (England), the Lyon president closed the door to the departure of his young attacking player.

“Rayan is a child of the club who is part of our project, seeing him courted is normal and makes us proud of our academy too, but having him with us is much more important than anything”, assured Jean-Michel Aulas on his twitter account. Before persisting a few hours later. “If there is one thing we all agree on, supporters, club, staff, players, it’s that a talent like Rayan will stay at OL,” he said.

Regarding Malo Gusto, under contract until June 2024 and ardently courted by several clubs including Chelsea, who made an initial offer of more than 20 million euros, he also said that the defender will not leave the Rhône before the end. of the season, and that he “will continue to play with OL at least until June 30, 2023”.

The situation is currently the same for Romain Faivre, even if it could quickly change. If the Rhone club is open to his departure, the ball is in the camp of Lorient who must meet the requirements of Lyon to secure the services of the former Brest. “As long as Lorient has not accepted the conditions set by OL, Romain will not go to Lorient,” posted Jean-Michel Aulas.

Rayan Cherki is under contract at Lyon until June 2024.

For now, only Karl Toko Ekambi has left OL, as confirmed by Olympique Lyonnais. Very close to Sevilla FC (Spain), the striker will finally try to revive in Rennes, where he will be responsible in particular for making Martin Terrier forget, forfeited until the end of the season due to a rupture of the ligaments left knee crossed.
