According to the Sun, Lyon are ready to listen to offers for striker Moussa Dembele this summer after they missed out on qualifying for a spot in Europe next season.
Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly interested in the 23-year-old, who scored 16 goals in 27 Ligue 1 games before the French season was halted and cut short by the coronavirus pandemic.
With Lyon finishing seventh and failing to qualify for European competition, club president Jean-Michel Aulas admits they will struggle to hold on to their best players.
‘I am going to do everything to keep the players,’ he told French publication Le Progres.
‘But players who are programmed to play in Europe could want to go elsewhere because we don’t have European football.’
Dembele previously played for Fulham and Celtic before joining Lyon in 2018.
