West Ham target Lyon star

Lyon

Marcelo has emerged as a target for Premier League outfit West Ham but Lyon are under no pressure to sell the defender.

The Brazilian centre-half joined Lyon last summer in a 7million euros switch from Besiktas and he quickly established himself as a key man in the French club’s defence, managing 35 Ligue 1 appearances last term.

It seems as if his performances have not gone unnoticed as reports in France claim the Hammers have submitted an offer for the 31-year-old.

However, Lyon have no desire to sell and with Marcelo under contract until 2020 it would take a big offer from West Ham to convince them to consider a transfer.
