OL: an unloved ready to go to L1 or abroad


Karl Toko Ekambi should not make old bones at Olympique Lyonnais. Taken in dislike for many months by the supporters, the Cameroonian clearly envisages a departure this winter, while several clubs are following him with interest.

Yet under contract with OL until June 2024, Karl Toko Ekambi no longer sees his future in the club led by Jean-Michel Aulas. Author of an insufficient season individually (19 games played, 4 goals, 2 assists), the Cameroonian, passed by Villarreal and Angers, crystallizes the tensions and no longer feels at ease within the French club. Stade Rennes, through the voice of its coach, Bruno Genesio, has revealed that it is interested in Karl Toko Ekambi. And according to information from RMC, the striker agrees contractually with the Breton club. But the e of Ligue 1 will have to be wary of the Saudi competition on the file. According to information from RMC Sports, Karl Toko Ekambi has also reached an agreement with Al Shabab for a contract. From now on, OL must reach an agreement with Rennes or Al Shabab, and the Cameroonian must make his choice between the two formations with different ambitions. Lyon are hoping for 7 million euros for this transfer.

Karl Toko Ekambi says no to two English clubs

According to the revelations of the journalist of RMC Fabrice Hawkins, the former Villarreal player, has been contacted by two bottom teams in England. Indeed, the 20th, Southampton, and the 19th, Everton, would have tried an approach with Karl Toko Ekambi. The international selections would have refused outright these two proposals. At 30, the Lyonnais does not want to play in a club struggling not to descend to the lower level. Rennes and Al Shabab therefore seem to be leading the race in the case. It remains to be seen whether Karl Toko Ekambi will favor the sports project, with Rennnes, the 5th in L1 still engaged in the Europa League, or the financial aspect, with the Saudi team.
