According to L’Equipe, Rafa Benitez has approached Lyon over a deal to sign versatile forward Martin Terrin – however our attempt to sign him on a six-month loan deal has been rejected..for now.
The French outlet claim Lyon are keen to keep him at present, but suggest their stance could change later in the window – with them having several options to choose from in his position.
Terrier, 21, can play as a central striker or out wide and has scored 4 goals in 21 appearances for the Ligue 1 giants this season.
