Ligue 1 Players Expected To Transfer This January

Bafetimbi Gomis

Gomis has turned heads from various clubs around Europe with his stunning finishing and brilliant individual performances for Lyon this season. Gomis has intrigued clubs including the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham. With several big clubs after his signature, Gomis could well be set for a move away from Lyon this January. Although, whilst he has vowed to stay at Lyon until the summer he did also admit that he would consider any interesting proposals.

Mathieu Valbuena

Valbuena has been tempted by the two Manchester clubs and has stated that those two teams are the only exit he will look towards if he was to leave Ligue 1. Valbuena has been a key player for Marseille ever since replacing Karim Ziani. He has also made an impact on the international stage, scoring and putting in a great performance for France against England last time the two sides met.

Younes Belhanda

The Moroccan maestro as I like to call him has been the Ligue 1 centre of attention since his emergence last season.  With rising interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Fenerbahce the midfield man has been tempted by a move to a different country. It’s just a question of will the Montpellier board let him go and if so for how much? Last season’s ligue 1 champions have set a minimum of 13 million euro price tag. Who will step in and take the Moroccan is yet to be known.

Michel Bastos

My favourite winger in the league. Michel Bastos is no doubt the spark Lyon have been missing while the Brazilian was out injured however since his comeback from injury, teams have been pursuing their interest in Bastos again. These teams include Liverpool, Newcastle and who else other than Tottenham. However Bastos has stated that he has no desire to leave Lyon in the January transfer window, maybe a big money offer and a crucial place in the first team can persuade him to pack his bags and leave the Ligue 1 championship contenders.
