The summer transfer window is closed, but several players are still free from any contract. This is particularly the case of Dan-Axel Zagadou, who appeals to West Ham and Lyon.
Dan-Axel Zagadou is courted. The French defender is in advanced negotiations with West Ham, according to our information. He has been free of any contract since leaving Borussia Dortmund and discussions with the Hammers relate to a 4-year contract.

Still according to our information, Olympique Lyonnais is also interested but comes from further afield. Peter Bosz would like to strengthen in defense. The player has the advantage of being free.
Also free from PSG, where he was trained, in the summer of 2017, Dan-Axel Zagadou struggled to settle in the long term in the eleven of Borussia Dortmund. His best season has never exceeded 23 games in all competitions, due in particular to several injuries. At the end of the contract last June, it was not extended by the German club. At 23, he is now free to join the club of his choice.
Lyon aware of their defensive problems
Peter Bosz seems to have realized that with such a fragile defense, it would be difficult for Olympique Lyonnais to play the leading roles in Ligue 1. The difficulties, in particular of Thiago Mendes, were glaring against Lorient, then Monaco. Training midfielder, the Brazilian sometimes seems in difficulty in the axis.
After having chained two defeats in a row in Ligue 1 for the first time since his arrival in Lyon, and a few days before receiving PSG, Peter Bosz has made his will to strengthen the defensive sector. Dan-Axel Zagadou is a lead, but Lyon are behind West Ham.
