Lyon in talks for Cenk Ozkacar and Facundo Pellistri

Lyon are working on deals for Altay Spor Kulubu defender Cenk Ozkacar and Peñarol winger Facundo PellistriRMC Sport reports.

The French club are in advanced talks for centre-back Ozkacar, 19, a Turkey under-21 international.

At the same time, sporting director Juninho is working on a deal for highly-rated Pellistri.

18-year-old Pellistri is one of the biggest talents in Uruguay and Manchester United are also after him.

His club Peñarol are currently refusing to budge on his €9m release clause, with OL wanting a reduction.

Pellistri, who has a Spanish passport, has already made 25 appearances for the Peñarol first team.

Lyon also hope to sign an established central defender and experienced defensive midfielder this summer.

Former Bayern Munich and Marseille star Luiz Gustavo, 33, is being considered by the club.

Gustavo is playing for Fenerbahce but has had some ‘salary concerns’ at the club so could be available.
