Lens has been alternating between good and bad since the start of the season, and is not as effective offensively as it was last season. The club would like to strengthen in this area.
Lens has identified its weak point since the start of the season, namely the attack. Considered not efficient enough in this area, the Sang et Or are investigating to find out who would be the ideal player to turn things around on the offensive front, according to information from Foot Mercato. The start of the season for French striker Elye Wahi is considered average by his club. 10th in Ligue 1, the Lensois would be well advised to win on Sunday evening against Olympique de Marseille.
Competition for Sékou Koïta
On the Lensois’ radar, the Malian Sékou Koïta has many clubs hoping to sign him. Currently at RB Salzburg in Austria, he is being closely followed by Eintracht Frankfurt and VfB Stuttgart. Lens will have to work hard to find the arguments to attract the Malian to northern France.
According to the French media, the Sang et Or were also tracking another free agent, but he has already committed to another club. A lead to forget for the 2022 French runners-up. Franck Haise and the management will need to carefully analyze the profiles to see who is best able to correct the flaws in the Lensois attack.
It is likely that Lens will make a move for a new striker in the winter transfer window. Koïta is a leading target, but the club will face competition from other clubs. It will also need to consider other options, such as free agents or players from smaller clubs.
