Lyon have made an approach for Diego Godin (Inter Milan)

RMC Sport report that Lyon Sporting Director Juninho is continuing his hunt to bring in an experienced central defender this summer, and has made an approach for 34-year-old Uruguayan international Diego Godin.

Inter Milan are keen to offload the player, who joined recently from Atletico Madrid. He has a huge footballing experience and a notorious character.

However, the approach has little chance of success – Juninho was quickly put off by his €5.5m to €6m a year salary.

This problem explains one of the reasons why Inter Milan are trying to offload him – unless he makes a considerable salary effort, a deal has no chance of success.
