According to Gianluca Di Marzio Lyon attacker, Rachid Ghezzal is close to joining Ligue One rivals Paris St Germain.
Ghezzal may have played his entire career at Lyon but he also has ties to Italy since his brother Abdelkader plays for Como. Juventus and Napoli are interested in acquiring the 24 year old offensive winger who has been compared to Domenico Berardi but Rachid is expected to stay in France and PSG are close to completing a deal for him. Di Marzio goes on to claim that Juventus director Marotta and his colleague Giuntoli at Napoli will have to look elsewhere now.
Ghezzal is one of 5 Olympique Lyon players that have been linked with the Irons over the last month, including their rumoured main target Alexandre Lacazette, Samuel Umtiti (whom Bilic talked about during this evening’s Euro 2016 opener), former Manchester United fullback Rafael and more recently Nabil Fekir.
