MANCHESTER UNITED defenders Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly are both wanted by Lyon, according to reports.

The Ligue 1 club are desperate to bolster their options at the back and see the pair as viable options.

According to L'Equipe, Bailly, 25, is top of their transfer wishlist.

The Ivorian – out of contract at the end of next season – has not played for United since the famous 3-1 win away at Paris Saint-Germain on March 6 – in that game he was subbed off after 36 minutes.

His last Premier League start was against Leicester on February 3, when he lined up alongside Lindelof at centre-back for the 1-0 win.

But as revealed by SunSport, Bailly is being lined up by Arsenal for a summer move.

Boss Unai Emery is an admirer of the defender and negotiations are set to start at £20million.

Failure to land Bailly could mean Lyon turn their attention to his team-mate Lindelof.

The Swedish international, 24, has enjoyed a better season at Old Trafford this time around after arriving in 2017 on a four-year deal.

In the same year, Manchester United sold winger Memphis Depay to Lyon and he has proved a real hit for the French outfit.

So much so that he is being lined up with a move away from Lyon – as is midfielder Nabil Fekir.

He almost joined Liverpool last summer but is now a transfer target for Juventus.

The Italian champions – who retained their Serie A title once again last weekend – have already secured Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer this summer.

But they are understood to be interested in landing Fekir as well.

The French World Cup winner began contract negotiations with his current club but these broke down and with just a year left on his current deal, Lyon will be desperate not to lose him for free.
