The Lille transfer window was somewhat disappointing for a candidate for Europe. Champion of France in 2021, the mastiffs finished in a very sad 10th place last year. And it’s not necessarily the LOSC transfer window that will give fans hope.
Despite good recruits like Rémy Cabella, Bafodé Diakité, Mohamed Bayo and Adam Ounas, the mastiffs still recorded the loss of major elements like Sven Botman, Amadou Onana, Zeki Çelik or Renato Sanches.
A being is missing and everything is depopulated
Since January 2020, the United Kingdom has definitively left the European Union and has therefore cut itself off from all ties with the latter. Thus, outside their native country, British players are considered extra-community in Europe.. This evolution of the regulations pushes fewer British players to leave their island to try experiences in Spain, Italy, Germany or France.
And it is precisely in France that the English defensive midfielder Harry Winks could have landed.
Trained at Tottenham since 2002, the 26-year-old Spurs needed to revive. Far from the level that was his in 2019, the English international was looking for a new challenge in the form of a loan in order to revive.
And this challenge was all found. Indeed, after having English midfielder Joe Cole in its ranks, LOSC was ready to try again.
However, the arrival of the native of Hemel Hempstead had to take place after the departure of Yusuf Yazici so that a place as an extra-community player would be available.
Unfortunately for the Mastiffs, their Turkish attacking midfielder took time to find a new base, thus preventing his club from recruiting the English midfielder.
Finally, Harry Winks was loaned for a season to Sampdoria while Yusuf Yazici returned to his training club Trazbonspor. Lille can bite their fingers.
