A string of European sides are reportedly keeping tabs on midfielder Alou Diarra's situation at Lyon.
The French international moved to the Stade Gerland from Lens just before the transfer deadline this summer.
But since featuring in the World Cup final in Germany for Les Bleus, his chances have been limited.
Gerard Houllier has opted to play his other summer signing Jeremy Toulalan from Nantes, in the defensive midfield role instead.
Diarra is believed to have had talks with the boss about his future, and could now be set to move on during the January transfer window.
Internazionale are known to be seeking midfield reinforcements to aid in their domestic and UEFA Champions League campaigns.
A number of English clubs have been linked with the 25-year-old, while Galatasaray could also offer the Frenchman a route out of Lyon.
