It’s official now. Olympique de Lyon seizes on the services of the Spanish international midfielder, Damaris Egurrola. The Spanish promise, who signed for Everton in August and has been Athletic’s youth squad, signs with the French club for a period of 3 and a half years, that is, until June 30, 2024. In this way, the Lyon entity pays the more than 100,000 euros of the termination clause of the footballer in the English team.

Born in the United States in 1999, Damaris Egurrola trained in Spain at Athletic de Bilbao. Three years after joining the rojiblancas quarry, She began to be part of the first team at 16, winning the title of champion of Spain (2016). After playing 113 games (5 goals) in five seasons with Athletic, Damaris signed for Everton in the last summer transfer market.

The midfielder had to look for opportunities abroad as she was affected by the compensation clause (250,000 euros) that Athletic had put in place if she joined a Spanish club. Thus, despite the fact that Barça or Real Madrid had been interested in their services, Spanish football had to say goodbye to one of its pearls for this reason, which even took the players to court against their clubs.

At 21, the midfielder is one of the footballers who comes stomping from the lower categories of the National Team. Finalist of the U-20 World Cup in 2018, he won the U-19 Eurocup a year earlier, scoring one of the three goals for Spain in the final won against France (3-2). Undoubtedly, her premature successes lead her to be one of the players with the most projection in European football. After a few bars in the Women’s Premier, Damaris makes the leap now the best club in world women’s football: the almighty Lyon awaits her to shine.
