"In Lyon, it's a bit tricky...

"I have the feeling that Tottenham, who is very bad in the league, will need players, and what happens if indeed Tottenham wants this winter, and that Memphis says yes? How will Lyon handle all this?"

Whilst on international duty with Holland, the prolific striker was asked about the speculation over his future.

He had a rather brutal response, however.

I don't want to talk about that," he said. I don't want to talk about rumours that I know nothing about.

We leave it in the corridors.

I am focused on a strong season so far."

Juninho wants Benzema to end his career back with his former club.

He explained, "My wish is to propose to Karim to finish his career in Lyon.

"He is from here, he feels from here. Why not make an economic effort between both parties to make it happen? We cannot offer the same salary as Real Madrid , but we will wait for the right moment.

"I did it. I lowered my salary to play with Vasco at the end of my career. With Karim it can happen too, we just have to talk.

"We exchanged messages when I was in Brazil. I felt he would like to come. He has a lot of respect for the club. He often goes to the physical therapist Abdel, in Lyon too.

"I want him to come and play with us for two years, and then train some youngsters. Karim may be a leader we need. I dream that he will finish his career here in Lyon, his home."

Amid talk of Tottenham planning a January move for the former Manchester United attacker, Koeman says the Dutchman should be considering his options.

He said, "The fact that he does not play for the biggest team in the world obviously has no consequences for his place in the national team. But if he plays in a bigger club it would also be better for us.

"Lyon is also a major club that always plays in the Champions League. It is hoped that all players will play for the biggest clubs that are actually challenging for the big prizes. I think he is the kind of player who should play for such a club. If he were in the Premier League or any other major club it would be fantastic for him. But you have to ask him about his plans."

The Mirror says Tottenham are ready to make a 50million move for Manchester United flop Depay.

The Dutch striker has enjoyed a new lease of life after moving to Lyon and is also now an integral part of Ronald Koeman's impressive Holland side.

Lyon rescued Depay from an underwhelming time at Old Trafford in which he was better known for his flamboyance off the pitch rather than his performances on it.

But since arriving in France in January 2017 the 25-year-old has matured and gone from strength to strength.

That has attracted the attention of a number of leading clubs including Tottenham who have had the speedy forward regularly scouted including in the two recent Champions League games between Lyon and Benfica.

Off contract in June and struggling to break into manager Frank Lampard's starting line-up, Giroud is considering his options.

And it's emerged Chelsea are willing to sell in January - rather than allow the World Cup winner to run down his contract.

Lyon are keen, as are Crystal Palace and West Ham in England.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport says Inter Milan have also come forward, where former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is a fan. Giroud would arrive as competition for Romelu Lukaku in Conte's attack.
