Lyon have warned any clubs interested in Moussa Dembele that they intend to keep the centre-forward.
Dembele has been linked with Chelsea this month, with the Blues reported to have submitted an offer for the Frenchman who has netted 10 Ligue 1 goals this season.
Manchester United are also said to hold a long-standing interest in Dembele – but Lyon have warned anyone considering an offer for the 23-year-old not to bother.
“Olympique Lyonnais has taken note of certain information relayed by the media suggesting that Moussa Dembele could interest other clubs during this transfer window,” a statement read.
“OL would like to reaffirm its wish, as in the summer of 2019, to keep Moussa Dembele.
“The club has full confidence in Moussa and counts in particular on him to build a successful team for the seasons to come.”
L’OL tient à réaffirmer son souhait, comme lors de l’été 2019, de conserver @MDembele_10.
