The 5 players to target for RC Lens in the summer transfer window

RC Lens is already doing very well in this summer transfer window. He was able to afford Loïs Openda, Adam Buksa, Brice Samba or even Jimmy Cabot. However, the Sang et Or have not yet finished getting stronger. And we have an idea of ​​the players who could make Franck Haise happy for this new exercise.

As we are used to since its rise in Ligue 1, RC Lens should always evolve with a three-man defense. The Sang et Or already have some great people, with Kevin Danso, Facundo Medina, Jonathan Gradit, Christopher Wooh. Massadio Haidara can also play in this position. They could, however, intend to find a last one, to double the three positions.

The young Adrien Louveau may seem a bit tender to be the sixth man. And why not take a look at the teams that were demoted from the last Ligue 1? The name of Kiki Kouyaté could interest the Lensois board. The central defender of FC Metz could revive, after a complicated season, with the Messins.

As we know, RC Lens is not afraid to recruit in the second zone championships. And it’s a strategy that often pays off for Blood and Gold! They could try a very nice shot for the right-back position. On the start, Jonathan Clauss could leave a big void in this corridor.

The Lensois club would have every interest in positioning itself on Alfons Sampsted. Wearing the Bodo / Glimt jersey, the Icelandic side is inexhaustible in his lane. He would also find Patrick Berg within the Lensois club! And the 24-year-old would certainly have no trouble evolving as a right piston.

Valued at 1.5 million euros by TransfermarktRC Lens could easily position itself in the event of the departure of Jonathan Claus.

Jessy Deminguet

RC Lens is on the trail of Jessy Deminguet. The midfielder has been playing at SM Caen since he was young. He has more than 130 meetings with the Caen club, including 32 in Ligue 1. And the 24-year-old would intend to return to the elite of French football during this summer transfer window.

His training club should not retain him, since his contract is at the end of June 2023. In addition to Toulouse FC, RC Lens intends to allow him to return to Ligue 1. He will then strengthen a high quality sector. , but who lost Cheick Doucouré and who could perhaps also see the departure of Seko Fofana.

Iliman Ndiaye

Having passed through the OM training center, Iliman Ndiaye is now playing in England. The Senegalese midfielder has just played his first full season with Sheffield United. And he made a strong impression, having already started nearly 23 Championship games.

He has a particularly versatile profile, since he can evolve as an attacking midfielder, as a left midfielder, but also at the forefront of the attack. The 22-year-old could be a nice move to try, especially in the event of Seko Fofana’s departure. There is no doubt that he would not be against the idea of ​​joining Ligue 1 and RC Lens.

RC Lens have strengthened considerably in attack. After Arnaud Kalimuendo returned from loan, the Sang et Or were able to afford Loïs Openda and Adam Buksa. They have plenty to do with Florian Sotoca and Ignatius Ganago as well. The latter could however leave RC Lens during this summer transfer window.

And the Lensois leaders could then decide to replace him. It could be very interesting to position yourself on Sékou Mara. Not sure of staying in Ligue 2, the Girondins de Bordeaux need to sell. And the young 19-year-old French talent is one of the very nice shots to try within the Girondins club.
