Lyon, 26 January 2018
Martin Terrier has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with Olympique Lyonnais, i.e. until 30 June 2022. The French international “Espoir” comes to OL from Lille and will play on loan for Strasbourg until the end of the 2017/18 season. The amount of the transfer is €11 million, plus incentives of up to €4 million and an earn-out of 10% of the capital gain on any future transfer.
Before joining Olympique Lyonnais officially on 1 July 2018, Martin Terrier will finish the season with Strasbourg, where he has played 16 Ligue 1 matches and scored three goals.
The 20-year-old striker played in the U20 World Cup in South Korea with Lucas Tousart and has since been selected to play five times with the “Espoirs”, scoring seven goals including a triple against Kazakhstan on 5 September 2017.
Olympique Lyonnais is pleased to welcome Martin Terrier, who is considered one of the top potential stars at his position.
Florian Maurice said, "I first saw Martin Terrier play last season with Lille. This year, I have continued to follow him at Strasbourg, and especially with the “Espoir” team, where he has performed particularly well. He is a striker with a variety of talents and is clever in a way that has become relatively rare in football. He does everything right. He is quick, powerful, very much at ease technically and very skilful in front of the goal.”
