Zapping But! Soccer club OL: the most expensive transfers in history
Olympique Lyonnais will not have made the trip to the Stade de France for nothing on May 7th. Not only did he bring home the Gambardella Cup after winning on penalties against SM Caen (1-1, 5 pens to 3) but, in addition, he took the opportunity to flash on a Norman nugget, which he would be well recruited next season, according to Le Progrès!
This nugget is Norman Bassette, 17-year-old striker. And incidentally the player who missed his attempt during the penalty shootout, precipitating the Lyon victory. Under contract for another three years with the SMC, he was offered to incorporate the professional workforce next season if he stays in Normandy when he would start in reserve in Lyon. He is the second Malherbe player in OL’s sights, after defensive midfielder Johann Lepenant, who is close to signing up.
Young 🇧🇪 striker Norman Bassette is attracting interest from @OL. Bassette scored 8 goals in 21 games for #SMCaen U21 this season. He is under contract for another 3 years, the club wants to include him in the A team next season. If he were to move to Lyon, he would be in the second team. pic.twitter.com/4aBKaJyo9e

In addition to Johann Lepenant, OL would be eyeing another SM Caen player, striker Norman Bassette (17), met by his U20 team in the Coupe Gambardella final. Les Gones could thus surpass themselves at a lower cost.
