Lyon claim Premiership interest in duo

Ligue 1 outfit Lyon claim Lisandro Lopez and Michel Bastos are being watched by Premier League clubs. Lyon concede that there are plenty of teams monitoring the duo, with English clubs among them.

On Lisandro, club chairman Jean-Michel Aulas told "It is not true that Lisandro has already said farewell to Lyon fans. There has been a misunderstanding.

"I am waiting on news from Italy and England.

"Juventus and Fiorentina? I know the presidents of both clubs and neither has contacted us directly."

On Bastos, he added: "I think he will leave in January.

"He is in contact with German, English and Brazilian clubs."
