French Ligue 1 outlet Olympique Lyon in search of a defender is currently targeting Hoffenheim central defender Kevin Akpoguma in the summer.
With the search ongoing for a new central defender, the club has targeted Akpoguma among others in a bid to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.
Lyon finished on a rather disappointing note last season, meaning they will not participate in any European competitions as long as France is concerned after finishing seventh on the league table.
And the search for a central defender may not be unconnected with their recent slump in the league.
Lyon could easily get the central defender this summer after he had just eleven starts to the Bundesliga campaign the whole season.
As per Fussball Transfers, Lyon appears to be desperate in their search for a central defender which has been attributed to the three men central defence pattern used by the club’s current coach Rudi Garcia.
It was a shock to see Lyon finish the league season behind Lille, Nice and Reims.
