Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has today spoken of his desire to enter contract negotiations with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Lloris has been in excellent form this season, form which has led to strong interest from clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.
Lyon have the second best defense in the Ligue 1 and Lloris has been at the centre of this fantastic achievement.
Aulas is keen to get a new contract sorted to ward off any interest from the big boys in England.
“I met with Hugo just before he left the national team to inform him that we’re ready to enter the negotiations,” the supremo told French radio station RMC.
“We’d like to have this wrapped up within a month and give him the good terms that he deserves and that Olympique Lyonnais want.”
The 24-year-old has kept 10 clean sheets this season and has cemented his spot as the French No. 1.
