Speaking cautiously of Milan Skrinjar, Christophe Galtier has reminisced in recent days about his desire to see an attacking element this winter to make up for Pablo Sarabia’s departure from the Premier League. Behind the scenes, Luis Campos, PSG’s football adviser, is busy looking for a rare gem, with a recruiter currently closing in on Lyon.
According to our information, which confirms L’Equipe’s information, Ryan Sherkey is the circuit preferred by the Parisian management this winter transfer window. The big hope OL, which Laurent Blanc used in several matches, has been the subject of repeated discussions between the two clubs in recent days. Paris announced the terms of the exit with the leaders of the Rhone. The first proposal would have even been formulated over the weekend if we had not been able to provide details. On the other hand, to date there have been no discussions either with the player or with his entourage.

Campos has been following the development of Cherki for some time. His hiring would give little support to his desire to Frenchize the workforce, which saw the arrival last summer of Hugo Ekitike from Reims and Île-de-France Nordi Mukiele. We also remember that in October 2021, Kylian Mbappe complimented his younger brother on a “great talent”, to which the Lyons responded during his first call to the France Espoirs team: “It made me happy, I have the chance to speak with him quite often, we discuss everything and nothing, and he gives me a lot of advice before matches. “Had he joined PSG, Cerki would have found a player who could quickly integrate him into the Paris squad, where his dribbling and shooting qualities would open up other prospects for MHM with a different profile.
While the door has been opened for the departure of Carl Toko Ekambi, requested by Rennes and Celta Vigo, for Romain Favre (Lorient) and Malo Gusto is the subject of Chelsea’s attack at the end of the transfer window, Lyon, currently 9th in Ligue 1, may , will have to make another big decision with Ryan Cherkey, whose contract ends in 2024. 19 years. This was before Paris accelerated with not very expandable funds, mind you, due to financial fair play. Apart from a possible loan, the capital club will not provide more than 10-15 million euros to complete his recruitment.
“Ryan is a kid of a club that is part of our project,” OL President Jean-Michel Ola responded on Twitter. It’s normal to see him being looked after and we’re proud of our academy too, but having him with us is more important than anything. »
