At this rate, Merlus supporters will have a hard time recognizing their attackers on February 1, during Reims-Lorient since almost the entire attacking face of the Breton club could be upset. As revealed by Foot MercatoCaen is in discussions with FCL to loan Austrian striker Adrien Grbic (26, under contract until 2025), even if no full agreement has yet been found.
At the same time, Ibrahima Koné could also change his tune by January 31, the closing date of the market. The powerful Malian striker (23 years old, 2026) has an important rating with some French clubs but also in the Championship (English D2) where his profile is very popular. A departure is far from being ruled out while Lorient is still working on the departure of Terem Moffi (23 years old, 2024) and the arrivals of Bamba Dieng (22 years old, OM) and Wilson Isidor (22, Lokomotiv Moscow).
