Miralem Pjanic remains fully committed to Lyon and claims he is hoping to agree a contract extension with the club.
Speculation has suggested that the Bosnia international is a target for a number of top clubs.
Having burst onto the scene in 2007, the 21-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most exciting talents in European football.
He has spent the last three years with Lyon, becoming an integral part of their first-team set-up.
With his ability to dictate proceedings from a withdrawn striker role clear for all to see, it comes as no surprise to find that his name has been mentioned in transfer gossip columns on a regular basis.
Premier League outfit Tottenham are reported to be among those keeping a close eye on Pjanic and his situation in France.
The youngster insists he is happy where he is, though, and admits he would rather pen a new deal at Lyon than take on a new challenge elsewhere.
"Anything can still happen up until 31st August," he told RMC.
"But I have said from the beginning that my place is Lyon.
"The club feels the same way. I have spoken to club officials and everyone agrees.
"I am 200 per cent invested in this team and I want to continue here.
"Discussions are currently ongoing with the management regarding a contract extension."
