Aulas admits Lyon interest in Sakho and Chantome

The supremo revealed his side are tracking the Paris Saint-Germain duo, who have fallen out of favour at the Parc des Princes following heavy investment at the club
Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed Olympique Lyonnais are exploring the possibility of signing Mamadou Sakho and Clement Chantome from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The French giants finished fourth in Ligue 1 last term and coach Remi Garde is likely to reshape his squad in preparation for the new season. Now, according to the club's president, the young France defender and the central midfielder are on their radar.

"There will be arrivals [this summer], if there are departures. Sakho is very strong and, yes, Chantome is of interest," Aulas told RMC.

Sakho, in particular, is believed to be unsettled at PSG following their recent raft of high-profile arrivals, including AC Milan pair Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.

"If another defender comes in, I will do everything to leave because I have to think about my future," Sakho previously told L'Equipe.

"I need to play at my club - that is very clear. That is why I am thinking about a departure."
