Lyon in talks with Filipe Luis

Lyon have opened talks with out-of-contract Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis as they continue their search for a replacement of Ferland Mendy, who last week confirmed a move to Real Madrid, according to L’Équipe.

The 33-year-old is still waiting to see if he receives a surprise contract extension offer from Atleti, whilst Flamengo, Barcelona, AS Monaco and other English sides have made enquiries.

The player does not want to make a decision on his future until after the Copa America, which doesn’t suit OL, who want to sort this out quickly.

They have also initiated contact with two other Brazilian left-backs: Renan Lodi (Club Athletico Paranaense) and Ayrton Lucas (Spartak Moscow).
