Olympique Lyon on the Verge of Acquiring Nigerian Forward Gift Orban

Posted : 17 January 2024

Olympique Lyon, a prominent football club in France's Ligue 1, is on the verge of completing a significant signing with the potential acquisition of Nigerian forward Gift Orban from KAA Gent, a competitive team in the Belgian Pro League. Orban, recognized for his versatility and direct goal-scoring threat, has made a notable impact in football since joining Gent from Stabaek, a Norwegian second division team, in January 2023.

Gift Orban's journey with Gent has been remarkable, scoring an impressive 20 goals in 22 matches during his initial period. His outstanding performances attracted the attention of several top clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur. However, his current season has seen a decline in performance, with Orban scoring 12 goals in 30 games.

Despite the recent dip in his scoring rate, Orban's move to Olympique Lyon is viewed as a crucial boost for the French club. Lyon is currently facing a challenging season, languishing at the 16th position in the Ligue 1 table. Orban's arrival is expected to enhance the team's performance and help stave off the threat of relegation to Ligue 2.

The imminent transfer of Orban was confirmed by respected transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. The final details of the transfer, reportedly involving a fee of around €13 million, are set to be concluded in the coming hours. Orban is poised to sign a contract with Lyon until 2028, marking a significant milestone in his career.
