LYON are reported to be close to signing Rennes defender Anthony Reveillere.

The French champions have been tracking the 23-year-old for the past few months and reports in France suggest Lyon are on the verge of snapping up the left back.

Reveillere spent the second half of last season on loan at Valencia, but returned to Rennes after the Spanish side decided not to offer him a permanent stay.

Despite impressing at La Mestalla, Valencia declined the option to complete a permanent ‚é¼4 million (£2.5 million) transfer for the full back.

Lyon are preparing for next season's Champions League and are keen to bolster their squad.

Reveillere is believed to be keen on a transfer away from Rennes and the lure of Champions League football could see him move to Stade Gerland.
