Rennes striker, and one-time Arsenal target, Jimmy Briand is to join Lyon next Tuesday if Les Gones club president Jean-Michel Aulas is to believed.
Aulas told French press;
“We can say without reservation that Jimmy Briand is coming to Lyon on June 15th to pass the medical examination.
We have already reached agreement with him. There are just some details to sort with Rennes.
We have wanted to sign him for four years.”
Briand, who missed a large portion of last season through injury, has been signed as a direct replacement for out-of-contract forward Sidney Govou, who is expected to leave the Stade de Gerland shortly.
Just so you know.
