AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits Massimo Oddo could leave the club this summer.
The transfer window is due to close on 1st September, but a deal involving the full-back may be struck before that time.
Ligue 1 champions Lyon are known to have expressed an interest in the Italy international, keen for him to complement his countryman Fabio Grosso, who is already at Stade Gerland.
Oddo looks certain to lose his place in the Milan starting line-up this season to recent signing Gianluca Zambrotta, having already seen the former Barcelona man take his spot in the national side.
With that in mind, Galliani accepts the 32-year-old may be looking to take on a new challenge elsewhere.
"Lyon are interested in our full-back and anything is possible," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
