Lucas hardly featured for Lyon at the beginning of the season, making a paltry 8 appearances, lasting a combined 166 minutes, by January. As a result, he spent the second half of last season on loan with Stade Brest, for whom he turned out 16 times, getting 3 assists in the process.

His performances in Ligue 1 have prompted Monaco to raid their French side for his services, reportedly paying 10 million pounds in order to get the deal done.

Javi Galan joins Celta Vigo It was surprising that more interest did not materialise in Huesca’s Javi Galan. Only Lionel Messi completed more dribbles than the Spaniard last time out in La Liga, even more impressive when you consider that Galan is a left-back by trade.

Comfortable on the left side of a back five or a back four, Huesca’s relegation meant that the Spaniard had a release clause of just 3.5 million euros (3 million pounds). Despite alleged interest from Leeds United, it is Celta Vigo that have snapped up the 26-year-old, tying him to a five-year contract.

It could prove very astute business.

Atalanta sign Merih Demiral While Tottenham confirmed the signing of Atalanta’s Cristian Romero yesterday, Atalanta wasted no time in sourcing a replacement for the Argentine defender. The replacement that they opted for comes in the form of Juventus and Turkey defender Merih Demiral, who joins the club on loan with an option to buy.

As per transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, the deal will reach 30 million euros if the buy option is triggered. It is the second time that Atalanta have turned to the Turin club for defensive reinforcements in as many years, with Romero also joining initially on loan from the Old Lady before joining Tottenham this summer.

Could Demiral be as successful?

The attacking midfielder caught the eye at the Olympic games, where he appeared six times on his way to helping Brazil win gold. It is thought that Zenit paid just shy of 14 million pounds to acquire the creator from Red Bull Bragantino in the Brazilian Serie A, as they look to win their fourth Russian league title on the bounce.
