A 19 year old Frenchman is a nimble, smooth-running technical, strong, centre back who has shown remarkable maturity over the last few months.
The situation is a bit bleak. Damien Da Silva aging, Jason Denayer regularly injured in injury, and Jerome Boateng underperforming, it’s not an exaggeration to state that Lyon’s defense is headed with some authority by Lukeba. With 18 games in succession the defender has performed admirably in the difficult games against Porto during the Europa League and in the excellent Ligue 1 win over Nice.
In light of his inexperience and the club’s status and solid financial position the likelihood is that to be discussed in the coming summer time by Lukaba or the president Jean-Michel Aulas. But, should his development rate continue to increase, his status (and the value of his transfer) could change in 2023. The next season will be a time to watch Lukeba become one of France’s top defenders.
