Promoted to Ligue 1, FC Lorient is one of the most active French clubs in this calm transfer window. We can rejoice as we laugh at each of their recruitment announcements. With each new arrival, the Morbihan club splits a well thought-out video to stage their player. For example, we saw the Rennais Jérémy Morel come out of a submarine. On Wednesday, the Hake crossed a milestone by cheerfully chambering their Brest neighbors after having robbed striker Adrian Grbic. In agreement with the Stade Brestois, the former Clermontois had changed his mind at the last moment to join Lorient, who had clearly raised his offer for the second top scorer in Ligue 2.
On his Twitter account, the club of Loïc Ferry did not fail to tease his rival in a still stunning video that we let you discover below.

The Austrian Adrian Grbic, 17 goals and 4 assists for his first season in Clermont, was one of the revelations of the Ligue 2 championship before the interruption linked to the health crisis. "He is a very skilful player in front of goal, with the profile of a modern striker and with many technical qualities," said coach Christophe Pelissier on the club's website. Several sources mention a transfer estimated at 10 million euros.
Not a first for the Lorientais
Note that this is not the first time that Lorient has caught a player from a Breton neighbor. In Rennes, many remember the Majeed Waris episode. The emissaries of the Stade Rennais sent to Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport had seen the Ghanaian striker spin with the staff of FC Lorient following a last minute offer made to the Trabzonspor Turks. He will plant 25 pawns in 73 games under the colors of the FCL.
