Lyon Eye Six Players After Griedge Mbock Injury

Written by Oluwaseun Oyediji

After the long-term injury of Griedge Mbock, Lyon are desperate to sign a defender before the window closes.

More Details

According to Le Progres, the shortlist of potential signings include the American duo of Abby Dahlkemper and Alanna Cook, the English duo of Alex Greenwood and Jess Carter, Scottish Jen Beattie, and Dutch Aniek Nouwen.

Lyon defender Griedge Mbock is set to be sidelined for a minimum of six months after dislocating her right knee while on international duty with France.

San Diego midfielder, Abby Dahlkemper has only played six games for the team in the United States National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).


OL Reign’s Alanna Cook has played 15 games for the NWSL this season and might be hard for OL Reign to release her.

29-year-old Manchester City defender, Alex Greenwood might fancy a return to Lyon after spending the 2019/2020 season with the French D1 Arkema side.

Chelsea defender, Jessica Carter, Arsenal’s Jennifer Beattie, and Chelsea FC Women’s Aniek Nouwen are also on the watchlist of Lyon.


According to Le Parisien, an agreement is “close to being reached” for Manchester United midfielder, Jackie Groenen.
