A goalkeeper from the French team back in Ligue 1?


FC Lorient is looking for a goalkeeper, after the injury until the end of the season of the holder of the position with Merlus, Yvon Mvogo.

Alphonse Areola Hugo Lloris

Surprise team of the Ligue 1 season for the moment, FC Lorient, 7th in the standings with 32 points, 5 units from 4th (Monaco) and ahead of clubs of the caliber of OL (8th) and Nice (10th), leads his boat with confidence. Coached by Régis Le Bris, the Hakes develop an attractive, offensive and effective game, but unfortunately lost their goalkeeper, the Swiss Yvon Mvogo (28), hit in the kneecap.

Lorient, which is looking for a scorer (to compensate for the probable departure of Terem Moffi?) and a winger, is therefore also active for a goalkeeper, for this winter transfer window. And according to The Teamthe 7th in Ligue 1 is not afraid, knocking on the door of a goalkeeper of the French team, passed by Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid: Alphonse Areola.

Areola seduced by the promise of a significant playing time?

Selected by Didier Deschamps for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, despite very limited playing time at West Ham (2 Premier League games, 6 Europa League), Alphonse Areola (29) hopes to increase his number of games during the second part of the season, in particular to take advantage of the international retirements of Hugo Lloris (36 years old) and Steve Mandanda (38 years old), keeping his place with the Blues, or even leaving his position as number 3 for that of number 2, or holder. This is why the former Parisian is interested in the Lorient offer, according to the sports daily.

The French club have offered the Frenchman a six-month loan. West Ham, which has goalkeepers Lukasz Fabianski (37) and Darren Randolph (35), may not retain Alphonse Areola, who is under contract until June 2027.
