after the recent injury of

Ansu Fati

Lyon don’t seem to be eager of letting go of their player in January transfer season. The Catalonians initiated their like for the forward with the arrival of Koeman in August but still the player chose to stay with the French team.

Eventhough the 26-year-old is wanted by Barca Lyon president Aulas insists that the player will remain by their side until his contract comes to an end in June.

"Memphis is an exceptional player. It is him who is pulling the club, along with a number of other players," Aulas said on RMC.

"I was the first to say he would not go to Barcelona. Nobody listened to me during the transfer window because everybody thought he would leave.

"From the start, I told you, they will not leave because in a year when we were unfairly deprived of European competition, we absolutely have to make a success of the season. So, he will stay."
