French power Lyon has joined the race for the services of U.S. national team star DeAndre Yedlin. Goal has confirmed the offer, first reported by French outlet L'Equipe.
French powerhouse Lyon has become the latest club to approach Major League Soccer about the services of U.S. World Cup standout DeAndre Yedlin.

Sources within MLS have confirmed to Goal USA that Lyon has made an official transfer offer for Yedlin, joining a growing list of prospective suitors.

Clubs from England, Italy, France and Portugal have expressed interest in the 21-year-old Yedlin, who has quickly become one of the most coveted transfer targets in American soccer since impressing as a substitute in the World Cup. Yedlin's combination of youth, speed and marketability has clubs all across Europe lining up offers for the Seattle Sounders defender.

AS Roma has reportedly made an offer for Yedlin, while sources have confirmed to Goal that fellow Italian side Genoa has also put in a bid for Yedlin.

Yedlin played his first match since the World Cup on Wednesday in Seattle's U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal victory against the Portland Timbers. Yedlin played 90 minutes for the Sounders, who return to action on Sunday with another match against the Timbers.
