Lyon keeper Gregory Coupet is understood to be considering a summer move away from Stade Gerland.
The French international contemplated leaving the Ligue 1 club last season, before eventually being persuaded to extend his contract until 2010.
However, he is keen to experience a new challenge after 11 years with perennial champions Lyon and even talked about a move to the United States 12 months ago.
He is also known to be a fan of English football and would welcome the opportunity to join a Premier League club if his £3million buy-out clause was met.
"His desire to move on, which became apparent last season, has become even greater this season," Coupet's agent Frederic Dobraje told L'Equipe.
"He is seriously considering his options. It is a desire which Greg has held for some time."
The uncertainty surrounding Coupet's future has led to mounting speculation that Nice's exciting young talent Hugo Lloris could be in line to join Lyon's ranks come the end of the season.
Despite some impressive displays from understudy Remy Vercoutre when he deputised for Coupet earlier in the season, it is widely accepted that he will join Nantes in the summer if Les Canaris achieve promotion from Ligue 2.
As such, Alain Perrin could face a keeper crisis in the coming months and will be keen to get a replacement on board as soon as possible.
With the club currently going in search of a seventh straight league title, they will be forced to cope without top scorer Karim Benzema for Sunday's trip to Marseille.
The striker has been receiving treatment on a knee ligament injury this week but is not expected to be fit enough to make the journey to Stade Velodrome.
