Lyon have admitted they would be willing to sell French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris - but only for a 'decent price'.

Club president Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed Lyon is open to offers for the French international, with a number of Premier League clubs interested in securing his services.

Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal have all been linked with the star shot-stopper, but Aulas is not willing to see his keeper leave on the cheap. The former-Nice player signed for Lyon in 2008, and has since gone on to make over 100 league appearances for the Ligue 1 side.

And the Lyon président told TF1: "Lloris can go, but only for a decent price in relation to the market."

The 25-year-old is rated as one of the best young goalkeepers in the world, and appeared for France in their Euro 2012 campaign. According to Sky Sports, reports in France have revealed that Arsenal are leading the chase for the French number one, as they look to bring in competition to challenge current Gunners keeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Liverpool are also thought to be interested, but rumours that Lloris could come in to replace a departing Pepe Reina are reportedly wide of the mark. The new Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is thought to be keen to bring in new targets, rather than sell, and Reina has been one of Liverpool's most consistent performers since his arrival from La Liga.

Managerless Tottenham are believed to be close to appointing Andre Villas-Boas as their new boss, and with the 41-year-old Brad Friedel in goal, the new White Hart Lane supremo could make signing a younger keeper a top priority.

And with Lyon's president confirming his availability, Lloris could become the most sought-after target this summer.
