Ex Arsenal star, attacking midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide set for Lyon move



Lyon have reached an agreement with rivals Ligue 1 side Angers  for the transfer of attacking midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide.

Reine-Adelaide, 21 is expected to undergo a medical before finalising a move reportedly worth around €30m.

His former club,Arsenal have the opportunity to hijack the deal by submitting an equivalent bid.

The Gunners inserted the clause as part of the France Under-21 international’s departure in 2018 but are not expected to match Lyon’s offer.
