The 23-year-old has been in fine form for the French side this season. He has scored 28 goals in all competitions, and helped Lyon to push PSG all the way in the Ligue 1 title race.

However, the club insist that they are not selling their prize asset before moving in to a new stadium. Les Gones are building a new 58,000 capacity ground that is expected to be ready before Euro 2016 is held in the country. They will want their best players to stick around so that they are able to draw fans to the stadium when it is ready.

PSG are also interested in the forward, so the Premier League duo could have some big competition for his signature. However, with a new TV deal coming in soon the North London and Merseyside clubs will likely be able to match the French giants within Financial Fair Play regulations.
