Arsenal summer target, Sochaux’s Sebastien Corchia, looks set to complete a move to Ligue 1 rivals Lyon in the coming days, as long as a deal can be pushed through in the near future.
Aulas revealed via Twitter that Lyon were attempting to sign the highly rated French full-back, however he also stated that his club were tracking other players as backup plans if the deal hadn’t been accepted by Monday.
“We have made an offer to Sochaux: deadline Monday. There is also another player we are tracking just in case,” said Aulas.
The 22-year-old’s agent Francois Gilles has also revealed that the player would prefer a move to Lyon rather than the Gunners. “Sebastien has chosen,” he told reporters. “Lyon is the future, this is what he wants [and] is what he has planned.” Corchia has made 67 appearances for Sochaux since moving from Le Mans in 2011.
