Official: FC Lorient sign Adrian Grbic in €10m-plus deal

Lorient have strengthened their team after returning to Ligue 1 by signing Austrian striker Adrian Grbic from Clermont.

Grbic, 23, has signed a five-year contract in a deal that is expected to top €10m.

The Ligue 2 champions announced the signing with a video showing Grbic jumping out of a plane.

Lorient beat Brest to the acquisition of Grbic, a prolific goal scorer in the second level of French football.

Brighton, Celtic and Rangers were also interested in taking the young striker to the British Isles.

In the 2019-20 season, Grbic finished with 17 goals, behind only Le Havre’s Tino Kadewere in the rankings.

During his youth days, Grbic was on the books of Austria Vienna and VfB Stuttgart.

He has represented Austria up to under-21 level and a move to Ligue 1 could help him break into the senior side.
