Sevilla Chase Olympique Lyonnais Coach Claude Puel And Striker Lisandro Lopez - Report

Olympique Lyonnais could lose two key figures to Sevilla this summer, with Claude Puel and Lisandro Lopez both attracting Spanish interest.
According to a report on Cadena Ser, La Liga side Sevilla are considering replacing current head coach Gregorio Manzano with Olympique Lyonnais boss Claude Puel at the end of the season.

The story claims that the Nervionenses are far from happy with the team's performances under Manzano, and that they could therefore part company with the 54-year-old this summer, with the team currently sitting in eighth in the Primera Division table.

Puel is reportedly one of the top candidates to replace Manzano, and the 49-year-old recently revealed that he could well leave Lyon at the end of the season, even though les Gones' president Jean-Michel Aulas stated that he wouldn't be leaving the Ligue 1 giants.

Meanwhile, Sevilla are also being linked with a move for OL striker Lisandro Lopez. They are in the market for a new attacker because of the expected departure of Luis Fabiano at the end of the season, and they supposedly see the Argentine as the perfect signing.

Lopez joined Lyon from Porto in the summer of 2009 and has since become a key player at the French side, however, the 28-year-old is supposedly looking for a new challenge.
