Aulas rejects Juve approach for Lisandro

Created on 13 Jan., 2013 8:16 AM GMT

Olympique Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas says the club have rejected a loan offer from Juventus for striker Lisandro Lopez.

Serie A champions Juve are in the market for attacking reinforcements and appear to have made the 29-year-old one of their targets, though Aulas has said it will take a considerable bid to alter his stance.

"The Juventus loan offer has not been taken up by Lyon," he declared to Eurosport.Fr.

"Only if an adequate proposal is made to meet Lisandro's valuation will we consider, otherwise Lisandro is part of the club's DNA, and is not on the market."

Juve's search for a world-class striker has also seen Didier Drogba and Fernando Llorente linked with moves to Turin.

Lisandro joined Lyon in 2009 after a successful four-year spell in Portugal with Porto and has enjoyed a prolific strike rate with both clubs.
