And the former boss of LOSC has already made his little list.

According to the daily, Raul Bellanova, Ruben Pardo, Samuel Kalu, Josh Maja, Hwang Ui-jo, and Otavio (under contract until 2022), but also Toma Basic – which interests some foreign clubs and which owns a priori the biggest market value – and Loris Benito.

He would count on Costil, Adli and Oudin

The experienced Paul Baysse and Jimmy Briand could them outright see their contract be terminated. In all, Lopez would count on 41 million euros in sales, not counting the savings made on fees.

The future president would like to keep Benoît Costil, Yacine Adli and Rémi Oudin, probably also Laurent Koscielny in the event of a reduction in salary. For the rest, he should largely rebuild the team.
