Dango Ouattara joins Bournemouth for a record sum!

by admin

Tracked by many English clubs, Dango Ouattara, who had an excellent start to the season with FC Lorient, signed up with Bournemouth for compensation of 27 million euros.

We knew it, the magnificent first part of the men’s championship of Régis Le Bris was bound to attract many teams during the winter transfer window. Aware of the interest that hovered over certain players, FC Lorient had prepared to lose a few elements. And the first to leave Morbihan is none other than Dango Ouattara. Author of 6 goals and 6 assists in 18 Ligue 1 games, the young winger had revealed himself to the general public in recent months.

Direction Bournemouth for Dango Ouattara

While he was interested in clubs like Leicester or Everton, the Burkinabé international (10 caps) signed a contract with Bournemouth, the 17th in the Premier League who are struggling to stay in the top flight. The Cherries, whose owner is none other than Bill Foley, the American billionaire who entered the capital of FC Lorient last week, paid the crazy sum of 27 million euros (bonus included) to attach the services of Dango Ouattara. It is therefore the biggest sale in the history of Hakes since the old mark was only 20 million euros (Didier Ndong to Sunderland in 2016).

A departure for Moffi and Le Fée?

But this new record could quickly be just an old story. Indeed, Terem Moffi could commit to West Ham for a sum of around 30 million euros. OGC Nice, which also greatly appreciates the profile of the current second best scorer in Ligue 1 (12 goals in 18 games), does not however seem able to offer such a check to FC Lorient.

The player’s preference would however lean towards the Aiglons. It remains to be seen whether the Breton club is ready to part with its star striker following the departure of Dango Ouattara. If he announced that he would end the season with his training club, Enzo Le Fée could also join a new team, especially since he is popular in Germany. To be continued…
