According to reports, Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas is prepared to pay ‚é¼7 million to sign Nantes starlet Jeremy Toulalan this summer.

The French champions-elect are very interested in the 22-year-old defensive midfielder, so the deal is expected to go ahead without any setbacks.

Meanwhile, Nantes chairman Rudi Roussillon has once more rejected rumours about former player Vahid Halilhodzic returning to the club as coach.

Roussillon has refused to make a decision about the future coach at Nantes, but has ruled out the Trabzonspor tactician: "Vahid, it is not a good idea."

It is still uncertain as to whether current coach Serge Le Dizet will remain with Les Canaris next season.
