Looking for a top offensive reinforcement, Tottenham Hotspur would hit the mark...with Timo Werner. According to Sky Deutschland, negotiations between Spurs and RB Leipzig are very advanced. They should continue (and be finalized?) in the coming hours. Aged 27, the versatile German striker, whose playing time since the start of the season has been limited, would be motivated by the idea of joining the London team. As a reminder, Timo Werner knows the Premier League well since he wore the colors of Chelsea FC between 2020 and 2022. In 2023-2024, he scored 2 goals in 8 Bundesliga matches.
It was expected for several days, it is now official. Olympique Lyonnais formalized, this Friday evening, the arrivals of Lucas Perri (26 years old) and Adryelson (25 years old) from Botafogo FR. The goalkeeper and the central defender respectively cost “€3.250 million and €3.580 million to which can be added a 50% incentive on a possible future transfer”, announced the Rhone team in its official press release. The two Brazilians have signed up with Les Gones until June 2028. As a reminder, Botafogo FR belongs to John Textor, the American businessman (also) owner of Olympique Lyonnais.
Despite these two arrivals, Olympique Lyonnais - in bad shape in the championship (15th in Ligue 1) - should be (still) active during the month of January. Indeed, the Rhone management would like to strengthen (a little more) its defensive sector. And to do this, she would look towards Portugal. Indeed, RMC Sport tells us this Saturday that Les Gones have made a loan offer with an option to buy for FC Porto central defender David Carmo. Portuguese leaders “favor a cash offer but are not closed to discussions”, specify our colleagues. Furthermore, the 24-year-old player, confined to a replacement role, “would welcome a possible departure for Lyon.” David Carmo joined the “Dragons” in the summer of 2022 from SC Braga for a fee of €20.28 million.

At the end of his contract at the end of the season, Tiago Djaló could take charge of Italy this winter. Indeed, Juventus Turin and LOSC have reached an agreement for the transfer of the Portuguese defender for an amount of €3.5 million, bonus included, reveals Foot Mercato this Saturday. The Bianconeri, who would like to complete the operation in the coming hours, have yet to reach an agreement with the player. Aged 23, the versatile defender was (also) for a time on the books of Inter Milan. Tiago Djaló joined the Mastiffs in the summer of 2019 from AC Milan (U19) for a check for €4 million.
All that would be missing is formalization. Announced very close to Olympique de Marseille, Lucien Agoumé would have joined Sevilla FC in the form of a loan with an option to buy, reports RMC Sport this Saturday. Aged 21, the promising midfielder, lacking playing time at Inter Milan, hopes to be able to relaunch in Andalusia. This season, he has only made one (small) appearance in Serie A with the Nerazzurri.
