Brazil’s leading striker to Lyon

Cashing in part of their spoils from the Essien sale, Lyon have purchased star striker Fred from Cruzeiro for a fee of about 9m pounds.

The prolific 21-year-old striker saw lots of interest recently and is heading to France just before the end of the transfer window to finalize the terms of his transfer. Fred will join forces with John Carew, making Lyon’s attack formidable to say the least. Both are tall players.

In 71 games, Fred has scored 56 goals for Cruzeiro and was the top goal scorer in the Brazilian league last season.

The contract will extend for 5 seasons. The transfer gets Fred Champion’s League football from the start and could quickly boost his prospects for a call up to the national side.

Even with the loss of Essien, Lyon are looking formidable indeed. They again profit from loose work permit rules.
