Rachid Ghezzal threatened with the transfer list as Lyon extension talks drag

Lyon Président Jean Michel Aulas has threatened to transfer list attacking midfielder Rachid Ghezzal as contract extension talks continue to drag on for the Algerian international whose current deal expires in 2017.

The player is unhappy with the salary offers that OL have so far formulated, but Lyon boss Aulas appears to be at the end of his tether, admitting that should Ghezzal come back from his holiday in Dubai within this week unwilling to sign a contract extension, then he will be placed on the transfer list.

Ghezzal has multiple suitors, with Liverpool and Middlesborough have already made contact. Valencia also lodged a formal enquiry last night, according to L’Équipe.

Ghezzal and Lyon, a marriage that is coming to an end?
