Monaco defender Sebastien Squillaci could join Lyon in the coming weeks.
Monaco defender Sebastien Squillaci has emerged as a target for Lyon and could make the move to the Ligue 1 champions this summer.
Lyon are looking to strengthen their backline and spokesman Olivier Blanc revealed they are interested in the defender.
"We are negotiating," said Blanc.
"When we have an idea in our mind, we go for it."
French international Squillaci has made it clear that he wants to leave Monaco for a new challenge, and the Stade Gerland could offer him that chance.
