Lyon make contact for 17-year-old winger Filip Stevanović

Mozzart Sport report that Ligue 1 side Lyon have made contact via Head of Recruitment Bruno Cheyrou for 17-year-old Partizan Belgrade winger Filip Stevanović.

The outlet claims that OGC Nice were looking at him in winter, but OL are the side to have most recently made contact, resulting in Partizan quoting a €15m asking price back to the French club’s representatives.

The club’s manager, Savo Milosevic, recently indicated that they would only sell the teenager for a price equivalent to the club’s annual budget, which is €13m, hence the asking price.

Partizan have another condition: they want Stevanović to stay on loan for another six months if a deal goes through, as was the case with central defender Strahinja Pavlović’s mover to AS Monaco, preferably even longer, a year, if possible.

At the moment, Stevanović is wanted by Cheyrou, but not necessarily Sporting Director Juninho, which means that OL might not translate their interest in the player into a concrete offer.

Any deal for Stevanović won’t be concluded until 25th September, when the player becomes an adult.
