Rennes could make one of the big shots of this end of transfer window in Ligue 1. The Breton club has transmitted these last hours an offer for the Lyonnais Maxwel Cornet. It would be between 15 and 20 million euros. OL rejected this advance, arguing that the international striker Ivorian (22 years) was intransferable. This does not necessarily mean that the transfer will not succeed.
Rennes would like to make it its leader of attack
Indeed, the negotiations between the two clubs remain open and Lyon leaders are well aware that the discussions around an extension, started eight months ago, are at a standstill with the player and his advisers.
Two years from the end of his contract, and in such a context, Cornet wonders about his situation. Especially since the idea in Brittany is to make it the leader of the attack. It would also be a reinforcement of weight for the ambitious club, as much in the quest for a European place at the end of the season as in its course in Europa League.
