The former Arsenal prospect Jeff Reine-Adelaide has moved from Angers to Lyon.
Arsenal and Emery have had a busy summer transfer window. They signed, Dani Ceballos on loan, Kieran Tierney, David Luiz, William Saliba, Gabriel Martinelli, and Nicolas Pepe
The chances of Emery taking a player he has already rejected after bring in so many new faces were always going to be slim to none.
Reine-Adelaide has already started the season brightly, with one goal and one assist in the opening game of the season. It was part of a 3-1 victory over Bordeaux.
If he completes his move in time, the next Ligue 1 game he will play in as a Lyon player, will be against his current employer’s Angers.
Lyin have already spent heavily this summer. Thier spend so far is almost 90 million.
This is after cashing in on the likes Ndombele to Spurs and Mendy to Real Madrid, they brought in over 132 million Euros.
It appears though that Lyon manager Sylvinho has money still to spend, and wants to still make additions to his team.
He has already signed Joachim Andersen from Sampdoria, Thiago Mendes and Youssouf Kone from fellow Lille, and Jean Lucas from Flamengo.
The French transfer window closes September 2nd.
