West Ham midfielder Julien Faubert has admitted he is flattered to be linked with a move to Lyon.
The French champions are believed to be lining up a move for Faubert in the January transfer window after watching him in action recently.
Faubert has struggled to make an impact at Upton Park since his £6.1million arrival from Bordeuax in the summer of 2007.
Nantes and Rangers have also been credited with an interest in Faubert and the versatile performer admits a move to Lyon is an attractive proposition as it could boost his chance of winning a place in the France squad.
"It is flattering for me to know that Lyon have been coming to watch me," Faubert is quoted as saying in the Sunday Mirror.
"I think about the France national team and the 2010 World Cup every single day.
"I've had a taste of international football, and I miss it. Maybe a return to France would help me win a recall."
