Lyon Sign Lisandro Lopez From FC Porto


After losing Karim Benzema to Real Madrid, Lyon have secured the services of Argentina striker Lisandro Lopez from Porto on a five-year deal.

A statement from the club representative revealed that Lisandro Lopez has signed a five-year professional contract with Lyon after passing a medical test.

It is also believed that Lyon announced earlier this week that the two clubs had agreed a fee of around 24 millions euros (£20.6 million) for the striker.

The 26-year-old Argentine international, who scored six goals in 10 Champions League matches last season, helped Porto win the domestic league title from 2006 to 2009.

Earlier this summer Lyon sold Karim Benzema to Real Madrid for an initial 35 million euros, rising to 41 million dependent on performances.
