Hwang Ui-jo (Bordeaux) should join Olympiakos via Nottingham Forest

Ten days before the end of the transfer window, the degreasing operation begins to take shape at the Girondins. After M’Baye Niang, who joined Auxerre, and Edson Mexer, who should take the direction of Estoril, Bordeaux could also register the departure of Hwang Ui-jo very quickly. As revealed on our site, the South Korean international (29) was the subject of an offer from Nottingham Forest, who wanted to loan him to Olympiakos. A prospect that did not delight the striker, also solicited in the Premier League by Wolverhampton.

After taking information from his compatriot Hwang In-beon, who joined the reigning Greek champions this summer, the Bordelais would now be more inclined to agree to join the Piraeus club in the form of a loan. “It’s almost done”, told us a source familiar with the matter. Nottingham’s offer is €4m (plus €1m in bonuses). In France, Nantes but also Brest had also come forward to buy out the last year of Hwang’s contract.

Milan would hold the rope for Onana

In parallel with these exchanges, a way out could also be found for Junior Onana. The Cameroonian international (22) wants to join Serie A, where AC Milan and Monza court him. A meeting with his agent was scheduled for Tuesday to settle the situation. For the moment, the rossonero club – which is also interested in the Nigerian midfielder from Midtjylland, Raphael Onyedika – seems to be holding the rope.

In the event that the departures of Mexer, Hwang and Onana – whose emoluments are estimated at respectively €130,000 gross per month, €165,000 and €40,000 – materialize before this weekend, Bordeaux should be able to register at least two reinforcements before the reception of Guingamp on Saturday. Four players are currently in the waiting room: Jonas Lössl, Yoann Barbet, Vital Nsimba and Clément Michelin. Their contracts have so far not been approved due to the excessively high wage bill of the Bordeaux club.
