“My future? It’s unclear. But in the meantime I have a contract, I’m Lensois and, for now, I’ll stay Lensois next season”: Jonathan Clauss (29 years old, 36 games and 5 goals in L1 this season) did not really reassure RC Lens supporters (see here), and the latest information from Quotidien du Sport should have a similar effect since our colleagues see the right side leaving the Sang et Or this summer.
Clauss only has a year left on his contract, his replacement has already been recruited from Lens in the person of Jimmy Cabot, and it was enough to arouse the appetite of his suitors. Which are numerous, according to our colleagues: Spanish clubs (Valencia, Villarreal), English clubs (including Aston Villa) and two Ligue 1 clubs, Olympique de Marseille and Nice! Beautiful people, then. Still according to the Quotidien du Sport, the French neo-international is still hesitating and will wait until the end of the championship to make a choice, he who wishes to compete in the European Cup next season.
Clauss will also look for a club that will allow him to have enough playing time to play the World Cup in Qatar with the Blues. Nice would have the advantage, while seeing him stay at Lens cannot be ruled out.
