The Loïs Openda case is most likely coming to an end. The Belgian RC Lens striker has been highly sought after this summer. It must be said that for his first season in Ligue 1, the 23-year-old had done very well by scoring 21 goals and being one of the great architects of second place and qualification for the Blood and Gold Champions League. And we therefore expected to see him still stay in the North of France next season as his contract ended in June 2027.

But now, Leipzig arrived in the race and quickly convinced the player to leave Lens. “I’m happy and I had a good season. But we must not forget that I am a player with ambition. I want to play at the highest level possible. So you have to go to clubs that play at the highest level possible. Leipzig can be a good club that will help me take a step forward. Every year the team plays in the Champions League and tries for the title in the league.explained the main interested party when the RCL did not expect to sell him and was already planning next season with him.

Lens wins the case

“A lot of people tell me that I need another season at Lens, to blossom. I think it might be a good time to reach an even higher level. Leipzig is a bit bigger” he added in the columns of The Team. So inevitably, when negotiating the amount of the transfer, the Lensoise management was intransigent and left Leipzig no choice. The first three offers between 30 and 40 million euros were refused. But this time, Lens seems to have finally accepted the new German attempt.

Kicker indeed claims that Lens and RB Leipzig have finally reached an agreement. Openda will be sold in exchange for 38 M€ fixed plus bonuses which should increase the sum to 45 million, the amount desired by Lens. In Leipzig, the Belgian will replace Christopher Nkunku (left for Chelsea) and sign a five-year contract, ie until 2028 to become the most expensive recruit in the history of the young German club.
