Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed Chelsea target Florent Malouda could leave the club, while he hopes to lure Italy World Cup-winning defender Fabio Grosso from Internazionale.

Malouda´s Lyon and France team-mate Eric Abidal has already left to join Barcelona and that could open the door to the arrival of Grosso.

Aulas said: "He (Grosso) is one of the players who is interesting us. He is a World Cup winner. We are losing a World Cup finalist (Abidal) and a World Cup winner (Grosso) could be coming in. It´s the proof that Lyon interests player of top quality and we have been following things for a while."
