With a view to the next summer transfer window, OL were monitoring Algerian defender Ahmed Touba.
Very active this winter with the recruitment of Tanguy Ndombele and Romain Faivre in the last straight line of the transfer window, Olympique Lyonnais could once again be a protagonist on the transfer market in June. In the defensive sector, there could be a large number of movements with in particular the scheduled departures of Jason Denayer (end of contract) as well as Emerson Pamieri (end of loan). In order to compensate for one of these two departures, OL are on the trail of an Algerian defender in the person of Ahmed Touba according to information obtained by Foot Mercato. An interesting profile in more ways than one for the Rhone leaders…
🚨 Ahmed Touba is quite courted for the summer transfer window:

Beyond being young and relatively financially accessible, the 23-year-old Algerian defender has a very interesting versatility for Olympique Lyonnais. Left-handed, he is able to play as a central defender but also as a left-back. A godsend for Peter Bosz, who likes to be able to count on certain versatile players in his squad, such as Léo Dubois, who is just as capable of playing on the right of a four-man defense or as a right central in a five-man defense.
Lyon face stiff competition for Touba
Ahmed Touba, who is currently playing in the Netherlands in the RKC Waalwijk club, is not only followed by OL since, according to information from FM, Betis Sevilla and Feyenoord are also called up. The name of Ahmed Touba is also beginning to flourish in England where bottom clubs such as Watford or Bournemouth are watching him. Suffice to say that for Olympique Lyonnais, it will not take long to take action so as not to be overtaken in this case revealing less than 5 million euros on the transfer market…
