However, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has stated that they are in no rush to lose the striker whilst they continue searching for a potential replacement.
The 66-year-old added that they would prefer to sign a replacement before allowing N'Jie to leave the club.
The Cameroon international scored seven goals for the French side in 30 appearances last season during their surge for the Ligue 1 title.
Tim Sherwood's side have also been linked with Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez as they seek to strengthen their forward line with their current crop of forwards - Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado - seemingly heading for the exit door.
