Lyon are believed to be competing with some big names in the Premier League for the services of Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey.

The Canaries are on the verge of a return to the Premier League but Lyon are thought to be hoping to lure the youngster across the Channel to continue his development in Ligue 1.

Godfrey has been a key figure in leading Daniel Farke’s side to the top of the Championship and it’s only a matter of time before they secure their place back in the top flight.

Lyon would face stern competition for the defender’s services, with Liverpool believed to be considering a bid after sending scouts to watch Godfrey in action this season.

The Ligue 1 side are thought to be ready to put £10m down on the table to tempt Norwich into the sale.
