Official | Lille sign Mohamed Bayo from Clermont for €14m

As confirmed by the club, Lille have today completed the signing of Clermont striker Mohamed Bayo who will wear the number 27 shirt at the northern club this season.

Following a successful medical, the 24-year-old has signed a five-year deal with LOSC, keeping him at the club until 2027 after a €14m deal was agreed with Clermont, a club with which the player has been connected with since the age of six. After a breakthrough season on loan in National, the French third tier, with Dunkerque, Bayo scored 22 goals and added seven assists in 38 Ligue 2 games during the 20/21 season to finish as the division’s top scorer and lead his club to promotion in second spot behind Troyes. 

The Guinea international managed 14 goals and five assists in Ligue 1 last season as Clermont narrowly avoided relegation in the club’s first ever top-flight campaign. Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin were also reported as interested in signing the player this summer, along with Valencia, Everton, West Ham and Frankfurt, say the sports daily.
