Already orphaned by Randal Kolo Muani, free party to Eintracht Frankfurt at the end of his contract, FC Nantes risks losing a second executive.

This time, it is the master to play Ludovic Blas, in question! Confirming information from journalist Fabrizio Romano, The Team explains this Sunday that Lille has started negotiations with the Canaries to recruit the 24-year-old attacking midfielder. According to the same source, the discussions revolve around a transfer to 15 million euros for the French, under contract until June 2024. Author of 10 goals and 5 assists, the former Guingampais comes out of a season very successful and he would have already received a contract proposal from the Mastiffs, who have been coveting him for many months. Despite the absence of a European Cup this season in the North, Blas could well be tempted.

This departure would obviously be a great loss for the people of Nantes, who are coming out of a magnificent season marked by a victory in the Coupe de France and a 9e place in Ligue 1. Despite participating in the next Europa League, President Waldemar Kita was clear: the most bankable players like Blas, but also goalkeeper Alban Lafont and winger Moses Simon have a good exit. And the prospect of a departure seems to be clearly becoming clearer for the first, however expected to start this Sunday against Paris Saint-Germain on the occasion of the Champions Trophy.

Who to replace Blas?

With the arrival of French international Moussa Sissoko in midfield and Egyptian striker Mostafa Mohamed, the Canaries have also displayed ambitions for this transfer window, but there is no doubt that Antoine Kombouaré will ask his president to find him a replacement in his creative environment if his departure were to be confirmed. Remember that this should have been Youssouf M’Changama but the Comorian finally joined Auxerre, for lack of agreement between the two parties.
