Elis (Bordeaux) change de cap, Diallo (Strasbourg) proche d’un départ, un ex de Lens et Rennes de retour en L1?
Girondins, OGC Nice: Cardinal to the National 2
Evoked in Bordeaux before the choice of the club for the scapular finally fell on the former Guingampais Jonas Lössl, Yoan Cardinale found a club. The former Nice goalkeeper (28), free of any contract, has signed up with Toulon, resident of National 2.
Elis already ready to play with Bordeaux?
If he did not make any mystery about his desire to leave the Girondins de Bordeaux this summer (before pleading the translation error), Alberth Elis (26) is starting to get used to the idea of playing second French division. Indeed, the Honduran international does not have the hoped-for offers to allow him to leave Aquitaine. According to Girondinfos, the person concerned – who has resumed training at Haillan after his (slight) injury – is applying for a place in the group for the Niort match on Saturday (3rd day of L2).

A track from Nice and OL to the Premier League
Mentioned on the side of OL (before Les Gones signed Nicolas Tagliafico) but also from Nice to support Melvin Bard, Pervis Estupiñan (Villarreal, 24) is heading instead to the Premier League. According to Foot Mercato, Nottingham Forest, promoted this summer, would be ready to make an offer of around €20m for the Equatorial international. Estupiñan would have become the priority of the “Reds” since the failure of the track Alex Moreno (Bétis).
LOSC tried the nugget Ounahi (SCO Angers)
If the Dogues are now focused on signing Ludovic Blas (FC Nantes) to finalize their attacking sector, Lille tried another promising Ligue 1 player earlier in the Mercato. According to L’Equipe, LOSC even made an offer of 7 M€ to recover Azzedine Ounahi (SCO Angers, 22 years old) but the Maine-et-Loire club swept away this proposal, wishing to keep their Moroccan international. As a reminder, Ounahi – who is under contract at Angers until 2025 – also said he wanted to stay after the match against Nantes (0-0) on Sunday.
SCO Angers, Clermont, ESTAC, AJ Auxerre: an ex-Lensois and Rennais in the sights
Ex of RC Lens and Stade Rennais, Dimitri Cavaré (FC Sion, 27 years old). Currently in great shape with his Swiss club, the defender would be very interested in SCO Angers, Clermont Foot, ESTAC and AJ Auxerre according to 10 Sport. The interested party still has a year of contract with the Valais club.
RC Strasbourg: Habib Diallo close to Italy, 11 M€ in the coffers?
If he started the season well against AS Monaco last Saturday, scoring a goal (+ another refused), Habib Diallo (27) could quickly pack up. The Senegalese international – who has an exit voucher – was the subject of an offer of €11 million (excluding bonuses) from Salernitana (Serie A). Offer that the Alsatian club could accept according to Foot Mercato.
Brest is still discussing for Islam Slimani (Sporting)
As revealed a few days ago, Stade Brestois is still in discussions to recover Islam Slimani (Sporting, 34). Le 10 Sport confirms that if the salary discussions are complicated, an agreement is possible with the Algerian international, who really wants to leave Lisbon where he returned in January from OL.
FC Lorient: a hope on loan in Ligue 2
Yesterday afternoon, FC Lorient formalized the extension until June 2026 of its defender Loris Mouyokolo (21 years old) as well as his loan in stride to Rodez Aveyron Football (Ligue 2). This loan does not come with any purchase option…
Le Moustoir massacred before Lorient – OL on Sunday
Hakes are also mentioned in L’Equipe and Ouest-France where we are already wondering about the good performance of Sunday’s meeting (1 p.m.) against OL. While the Interceltic Festival is in full swing at Moustoir, the deplorable state of the lawn is worrying. Photos of a yellowed and damaged lawn are circulating on the web and FC Lorient will not have time to resolve the problem (nor to relocate) before the match, as its general manager has indicated: “For the moment , there is no stadium that can accommodate us, and we are on the option of playing at Moustoir on the lawn as it is”. What enrage Jean-Michel Aulas and give him an excuse in case of poor performance?

Montpellier: things are moving for Mavididi…
If we could fear that the injury of Stephy Mavididi on Sunday against Troyes (3-2) is bad news for the end of the Mercato MHSC, it is not so. Bertrand Queneutte (France Bleu Hérault) knew that the striker would probably leave and that English clubs were starting to make concrete progress on the trail of the former Arsenal player. Montpellier hopes to complete its sale to recruit ahead.
…and Omlin responds to rumors
Announced on the departure, mentioned on the Nice side earlier in the Mercato, then Leicester City not long ago, Jonas Omlin is still there and there. In the columns of the Midi Libre, the Swiss porter (28 years old) recalled all his involvement:
“I’m here, I’m trying to give my part and also give myself a good face, and try to get points for Montpellier”.
Toulouse FC: things are moving for Rhys Healey!
Top scorer in Ligue 2 last year (20 goals), Rhys Healey (27) is closer than ever to leaving Téfécé one year from the end of his contract. Refusing to extend, the British striker would be in “advanced negotiations” with several Championship teams including Burnley, according to the site Les Violets. Toulouse has already replaced its striker with the arrival of Dutchman Thijs Dallinga, already a scorer against Nice last weekend (1-1).
