Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas says Tottenham target Hugo Lloris must demand a move if he is to leave.
Spurs have been linked with the France captain but the club claim no offer has been made and the Ligue 1 side say they would not welcome one.
"Tottenham made contact through [Lloris'] agent but there has been no concrete offer since," Aulas said. "I don't think they really want him, but we really want to keep him.
"He will stay at Lyon unless he absolutely wants to go. The best present we can give to the fans is finding a way to keep him. We will try to do just that."
