According to the Brazil international's agents, Manchester United midfielder Anderson is wanted by Lyon. Anderson's future at Old Trafford has been the subject of recent speculation after he was left out of the squad for United's last two games.
Reports have claimed that Anderson paid an unauthorised visit back to Brazil and he is in line to be fined two weeks' wages.
However, the French outfit may be able to offer the 21 year old a route out of United.
A spokesman for his agents Gestifute told The Sun: "We are working towards some authorisation with United.
"The subject could be closed this weekend."
There are suggestions that United will look to have the highly-rated goalkeeper Hugo Lloris included any deal which would see Anderson head to Stade Gerland.
