OL should experience a turbulent end to the winter transfer window. If players are expected on the arrival side, the Rhone club could also get rid of certain elements.
In huge crisis of results, theOL intends to activate in the coming days on the transfer market. The recent home defeat against RC Strasbourg has logically angered Rhone fans, who are demanding change. According to Foot Mercato, John Textor and Jean-Michel Aulas will take over the rest of the transfer window in order to strengthen the workforce of Laurent Blanc. But departures cannot be ruled out either. Especially since one player seems to have reached the point of no return with OL: Karl Toko-Ekambi. Released under insults and whistles last Saturday during the reception of Strasbourg, the Cameroonian is in any case not lacking in courtiers if we are to believe the latest information from The Team.
Toko-Ekambi, this way to the exit?

Indeed, the sports media has indicated in recent hours that Karl Toko-Ekambi is one of the avenues studied by Stade Rennais to compensate for the injuries of Martin Terrier and Arnaud Kalimuendo. The OL player had signed in the Rhône when Florian Maurice was still in post in Lyon. The presence of the leader in Rennes could make it possible to accelerate the file. At the end of the contract in June 2024 with Olympique Lyonnais, Toko-Ekambi is estimated at nearly 10 million euros. It remains to be seen whether Laurent Blanc would validate this departure, while his offensive sector is already struggling to be effective since taking charge of the Lyon club. However, a departure of the 30-year-old player could also help ease some tensions, especially with the supporters. On the side of Rennes, the recruitment of Toko-Ekambi would undoubtedly be a good pick with a player who knows Ligue 1 well and who could flourish within a collective much better oiled than that of OL.
