Tinotenda Kadewere could leave Olympic Lyon next season after spending two seasons at the club.
The 26-year-old former Ligue 2 top scorer who arrived at Lyon on January 2020 on a four year contract, has endured a tough season featuring in 15 Ligue 1 matches, starting in only three games and a goal to his name- compared to the the previous season where he was on fire scoring ten goals in 24 starts and had featured 33 times in the Ligue 1.
Several clubs have been linked with the Zimbabwean, but it is Stade Brestois (Brest) that have publicly shown interest for the striker.
According to French media, Brest who are based in Brittany – northwest of France – finished 11th on the Ligue One log table with 48 points from 38 games, are preparing to make a move for Kadewere to replace their top striker Martin Santrino who is heading back to Inter Milan.
However, Kadewere is not forcing a move out of Lyon as he still has two more years on his contract.
The former Le Havre marksman will wait for Lyon to make a decision, but the tough competition for positions at the club, coupled by the arrival of Alexandre Lacazzette from Arsenal will likely force Kadewere to end his stay at Lyon to look for regular game time.
Kadewere’s agent Prosper Kadewere who is also the player’s brother is expected to have a meeting with Lyon in the coming weeks to discuss the forward’s future.
