Seven-time French champion Lyon has completed its first offseason signing by bringing in midfielder Jean Lucas. The 21-year-old Brazilian joined from Flamengo.

Juninho, a former Lyon player, has been appointed sporting director while Sylvinho took over as coach as a replacement for Bruno Genesio. Lyon finished last season in third place and qualified for the Champions League.
