Lyon turned down summer offer from Chelsea for defender Castello Lukeba

Les Gones want to pair the 20-year-old with an older player to aid his development, not least with Jérôme Boateng’s signing now established to have been a misstep from the club in the wake of his fitness issues, and Sinaly Diomandé’s lapses in concentration being seen as a liability.

A list of three names has been drawn up, although specific names have yet to filter, and the club is set to make its first moves in the coming hours as it looks to bring in a right-sided defender that can help get the most out of the exciting prospect that is Lukeba.
