Le Parisien's latest report highlights that PSG has put forward an offer to Lyon involving Bradley Barcola, valuing the deal at €45m. This proposal has been corroborated by L’Equipe, which affirms that Paris has officially submitted their inaugural written bid for the promising French young talent.

It's worth noting that the same source had previously conveyed that a starting bid of €30m, tabled by PSG, had been rejected by Lyon's management in July.

As of this afternoon, emerging details suggest that a mutual agreement between the two clubs might be reached in the upcoming hours. This, however, coincides with the need for Bradley Barcola himself to finalize the particulars of his envisaged contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

L’Equipe has pointed out that Lyon has not yet issued a formal response to PSG's proposal. Nonetheless, owner John Textor is displaying signs of willingness to accept a transfer deal. It seems the club is contemplating the prospect of parting ways with Barcola, given the increasingly amenable stance of its ownership.

Bradley Barcola's departure from Lyon follows an impressive performance in the past half-season. During the spring, he made a significant impact by netting seven goals and delivering nine assists for his club. Operating alongside Alexandre Lacazette, Barcola's breakthrough performances elevated his status within the footballing community.

Therefore, the current developments surrounding Bradley Barcola indicate PSG's intention to secure the young French player's services from Lyon for a substantial sum. While an agreement between the clubs is anticipated soon, Barcola's transition to the Parisian squad seems imminent as he finalizes the terms of his future contract.

It seems that Luis Enrique will count on a vast attack in Paris...
