Lyon in talks to sign Watford midfielder Étienne Capoue

RMC Sport report that Lyon are in active negotiations in an attempt to sign Watford’s French defensive midfielder Étienne Capoue.

The French international’s situation may well be too complicated to conclude an agreement, as Technical Director Filippo Giraldi views the player to be a key element to the Hornets’ chances of remaining in the Premier League.

The London club therefore categorically refused to do a deal – despite this, OL are continuing to work on Watford in recent hours. Lyon are aware that they may have to look elsewhere and therefore discussions will begin with other targets.
