French Ligue 1 side Lens will be looking to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window with the need of getting a left back top of their priority list, OwnGoalNigeria.com reports.
Currently sitting in seventh position on the Ligue 1 table, the club is facing a crisis at left back with regular option Deiver Machado out with an adductor injury, which will keep him out for months.
In his absence Przemyslaw Frankowski has been the one covering that role but he is more comfortable playing on the right, the other option is Faitout Maouassa , but coach Franck Haise is not entirely satisfied with the loanee as he has only played once this season.
To that extent, he has made the signing of a left back who can operate as a wing back a must in January, and has drawn up potential signings and it includes 24 year old Nigerian defender Bruno Onyemaechi.
Although the Nigerian who plays for Portuguese side Boavista will be heading to the AFCON with Nigeria in January, the club still has him among their top options in that role according to Foot mercato.
The other player is ex-Angers left-back Souleyman Doumbia (27), who stands out due to his rapid pace down the flank and has the benefit of being a free agent.
