According to L’Équipe, Lyon are set to complete the permanent signing of Saïd Benrahma (28) from West Ham United. The Algerian international has spent the second half of the 2023/24 season on loan at OL and played a starring role in their impressive comeback in the second half of the season.

The West Ham United attacking midfielder made 15 appearances for Les Gones last season, scoring 3 goals and registering 4 assists in all competitions. Benrahma’s loan move from the Premier League club cost Lyon €6m and upon the activation of his purchase option, the complete value of the deal should rise to €16m. The purchase option is valued at €10m.

Several purchase options to be activated?

OL have the opportunity to activate 5 purchase clauses which were agreed in loan moves negotiated last season. Mama Baldé, Orel Mangala, Ernest Nuamah and Duje Caleta-Ćar all have purchase options in their loan deals which the club plans to trigger to make their moves permanent, L’Équipe report.
