Man Utd, Liverpool and Man City in a fight to secure the signature of Mathis Rayan Cherki.
The young lad is contracted to the French outfit until 2022 but they will consider a deal, as early as January, providing the right offer is tabled.
It is almost certain that he will not come cheap. The Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, is a notorious negotiator. Similar to that of Tottenham’s Daniel Levy.
Another factor in Lyon’s favour is the number of clubs interested in the teenager.
It is clear that Cherki is something special with so many elite clubs monitoring him.
However, he would represent a risk if the fee demanded is too high.
And there lies the risk for all the clubs interested in signing him. They could drive the price up to such an extent that his signing becomes hazardous.
