A non-qualification would represent a big shortfall and this could lead to departures. Several candidates are also likely to leave the Rhône this summer. According to information from ChroniclesArsenal and Newcastle are very interested in Lucas Paquetto. The British media speaks of a transfer at 69 M€ and a weekly salary of 216,000 euros. Another potential starter, the captain Leo Dubois. Taken to task by the supporters who believe that his performance is far below the expected level, the right side will not be retained in the event of a good offer according to The Team. Jason Denayer also will not be retained. Soon at the end of the contract, the contractual discussions did not succeed. Finally, the question of the future of coach Peter Bosz will also be studied.

The renowned Batavian magazine Voetbal International notably cites his name among the successors of Erik ten Hag, leaving for Manchester United.
