The French news outlet claim Lyon sporting director Juninho has sent Florian Maurice to negotiate a deal before the transfer window closes on September 2.

Lyon manager Sylvinho is reportedly in the market to sign a versatile defender and an offensive midfielder as he looks to add plenty of depth.

Reine-Adelaide, formerly of Arsenal, is said to favour a move to Lyon over the likes of Monaco because of Champions League football. 

Reine-Adelaide helped Angers get their new season off to a flying start as he scored in their 3-1 win over Bordeaux on Saturday.
