Lyon ready to listen to offers for Kadewere

Tino Kadewere has struggled to get game time at Lyon this season

French Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyon will reportedly listen to offers for out-of-favour Warriors striker Tino Kadewere, who has become a fringe player under Peter Bosz.

According to the French news outlet Foot Mercato, Lyon have set an 8 million euros price tag for the striker, who joined Les Gones from Ligue 2 side Le Havre for a reported 15 million euros in 2019.

Kadewere reportedly made the decision to stay and fight for a place in the starting line-up despite Lyon receiving loan offers for the player from fellow French sides Reims, Troyes and Lorient as well as German Bundesliga side Stuttgart during the January transfer window period.

Having been frustrated by the continued lack of first-team opportunities, Kadewere now looks set to leave in the next European summer transfer window which begins on June 10.

“Several Ligue 1 teams were interested in signing Kadewere in the form of a loan, namely Reims, Lorient and Troyes. Abroad, other clubs were on the spot, including Stuttgart according to our information. But the door had finally remained closed,” Foot Mercato reports.

“This summer, it could well open up as Olympique Lyon expects at least 8 million euros. The player is in favour of leaving in order to find playing time, we were told. There is no doubt that many suitors should still come forward for the striker who has the qualities to render great service,” the publication says.

Kadewere was a regular starter in his debut season at Lyon as he made an immediate impact at the club with 10 goals and three assists to justify the 15 million euros fee Lyon paid to bring him from Ligue 2 side Le Havre

Having been a favourite of former coach Rudi Garcia, Kadewere, has endured a difficult season under current coach Bosz, with the Dutchman only starting him five times in all competitions this season.

The Zimbabwe international has scored just one goal this term.
