In the midst of the ongoing transfer market frenzy, a new departure seems to be on the horizon for Lille as Akim Zedadka’s time at the club appears to be coming to an end. After joining on a free transfer from Clermont last summer, Zedadka has struggled to make his mark as part of the squad, and it now seems likely that he will be seeking pastures new.
Following a rather inconsistent first half of the season at Lille, where Zedadka arrived just last summer, the right-back was loaned out to AJ Auxerre for the remainder of the 2022-2023 season in order to gain more playing time. However, as the new Ligue 1 season approaches, it appears that the 28-year-old defender does not feature in the plans of manager Paulo Fonseca, which could prompt him to seek a move away from the club in the coming weeks.
According to the reliable Mohamed Toubache-Ter, who shared the news on his Twitter account, there is no shortage of suitors for Zedadka. The Algerian international has reportedly even turned down an offer from the Turkish club Gaziantep. Nevertheless, there are other clubs showing interest in acquiring the services of the Lille player, which should provide an opportunity for the club to trim down its squad, especially with the potential arrival of Alidu Seidu in the coming days.
Additionally, it has been revealed that the Spanish club Cadiz is also considering a move for Akim Zedadka. According to Mohamed Toubache-Ter, they have already expressed their interest in the Algerian right-back. Currently, no agreement has been reached between the involved parties, but discussions are expected to continue in the coming days.
While all the focus at Lille seems to be on the Jonathan David transfer saga, it appears that the next departure could be that of Akim Zedadka. It is worth noting that the right-back featured in only eight matches and found the back of the net once during his time with Lille, before being sent out on loan to AJ Auxerre. There, he made 22 appearances, including two in the Coupe de France, but unfortunately, he couldn’t prevent the relegation of the Yonne-based club to Ligue 2.
As Lille prepares for the new season, the imminent departure of Zedadka remains a topic of discussion for both the club and its fans. The forthcoming negotiations and decisions regarding the future of the Algerian defender will undoubtedly be closely monitored by the football community, as the transfer market continues to provide its fair share of surprises and excitement.
In conclusion, it is clear that Akim Zedadka’s future at Lille hangs in the balance. With interest from clubs like Gaziantep and Cadiz, it remains to be seen where the talented right-back will ply his trade in the upcoming season. The Ligue 1 outfit has an opportunity to offload players and undergo necessary squad adjustments, all while ensuring they make the most of the transfer market. As the player seeks a new beginning, the upcoming days will be critical in determining the next chapter of Zedadka’s career.
