Wolfsburg wants to break Amin Sarr’s loan


By: Manu Tournoux

A year ago now, Olympique Lyonnais paid 11 million euros to acquire young Swedish striker Amin Sarr. The 22-year-old was expected to add to a struggling Lyon attack. But in the end, he never knew how to flourish and had a series of disappointing performances to the point of becoming undesirable only 6 months later. Despite a large sum invested in him, OL decided to part with him in the summer of 2023 and found a buyer in the Bundesliga. During the last days of the transfer window, Lyon made a very big move official. Amin Sarr was loaned with a purchase option of €13 million plus a bonus of 500,000 euros.

John Textor’s club had also negotiated a 10% profit-sharing on the capital gain of a possible future transfer while this loan had already cost the German club 1 million. It therefore looked like a perfect hold-up for OL who expected to make a profit on a flop. But Wolfsburg has visibly changed its mind. According to our information, the current 10th in the Bundesliga wants to end Amin Sarr’s loan. The Swedish international has only played 5 matches this season (0 goals) and is sidelined with a knee injury. The German leaders therefore want to get rid of him quickly to recruit a new player who would really strengthen the attack.
