GFFN can report that Lille have reached a provisional agreement with the Portuguese club Benfica over the loan signing of the Brazilian forward Derley.
If Lille want this player then they will have to decide quickly as there are currently three other interested clubs. The likely move away from Benfica was prompted by the signing of Jonathan Rodriguez which facilitates the release of a striker. The loan deal will come with an option to buy at the end of the season if Lille decide to give the go ahead.
Should Lille complete this move, Divock Origi might be able to return to Liverpool, the announcement that Lille forward Mickael Frey is out injured for between 3-4 months might put Liverpool’s hopes of bringing the Belgian international back to Merseyside in jeopardy however.
