Lyon coach Remi Garde is determined to keep defender Aly Cissokho at the Stade Gerland next season.
The 23-year-old full-back endured a difficult time last season for the Ligue 1 giants under Claude Puel, but Garde, who took over this summer, is keen for the Senegalese star, who is under contract with the club until 2014, to remain in France.
Liverpool are understood to have targeted the highly-rated youngster with Les Gones' officials wanting something in the region of £9million to let him leave.
Garde explained in L'Equipe: "Aly is an important player to us. But if an offer can match the chairman's plans, he could be likely to leave."
Meanwhile, Michel Bastos looks like he is set to stay with the club despite interest from clubs in Italy.
The Brazil International confirmed to L'Equipe that no bid had been made for his services, saying: "There is no offer which pleased the club so far. That is why I am still here."
