In the sense of arrivals as well as departures, Lorient is definitely a great animator of this end of the transfer window.


Surprising 6are of Ligue 1, the Merlus have decided to take advantage (financially) of their good first part of the season. First by selling Dango Ouattara to Bournemouth in exchange for a large check for 27 million euros. Then possibly by separating from their serial scorer Terem Moffi (12 goals this season) if Nice agrees to put on the table the 30 million euros expected.
