Barely a days after he finished an excellent Belgian Jupiler Pro League season with giants KAA Gent, 31-year-old Cameroonian Michael Ngadeu Ngadjui could be on the move this summer, kick442.com can report.
According to reports from multiple French outlets, Lyon is in the market for another defender, and have Ngadeu as their priority.
The former Diables Rouge of Maroua center half joined Gent for a fee around the regions €4.5 two seasons ago. He enjoyed a brilliant 2019-2020 season featuring in 57 games in all competitions for the Club.
The 2017 AFCON winner is amongst the most important component of coach Rigobert Song’s Indomitable Lions of Cameroon team.
Now we understand Lyon will have to pay around the sum of €10 Million to get the defender off the grasp of Gent.
The former Slavia Prague and FC Botosani man is on contract at Gent till the summer of 2023, but with Lyon in the market for a partner for Jason Denayer there is nothing too hard for president Jean-Michel Aulas of Lyon.
Lyon has signed Ngadeu’s international colleague, Karl-Toko-Ekambi on a five-year-deal last window.
Ngadeu has won 48 caps for Cameroon scoring three goals in his time in the team.
The defender began his career at Cameroonian Club Diables Rouge of Maroua before joining Canon where he was for three years until his switch to German amateur side Kirchhörder SC in 2010.
In ten-years in Europe Ngadeu has metamorphized into one of the strongest African defender in Europe.
In all, the 2017 AFCON winner won 125 caps with Gent – scoring nine goals and providing two assist. This season Ngadeu captained Gent to the Belgian cup title and played a key role in solidifying his club’s defense across the season thus explaining Lyon’s interest.
