Lyon midfielder Maxime Gonalons would welcome interest from Napoli this January after talks broke down last summer, according to the French international's agent.

Lyon midfielder Maxime Gonalons would welcome interest from Napoli in the January transfer window after summer talks failed to produce a concrete offer, according to the player's agent.

Gonalons was heavily linked with a move away from Ligue 1 during the summer, but despite reported interest from Napoli and Arsenal he ended up staying at Lyon.

With Remi Garde's side struggling in Ligue 1 the French international has refused to rule out leaving in January if the right offer comes along, according to his representative Frederic Guerra.

He told Radio Crc: "I met with [Napoli sporting director] Riccardo Bigon twice over the summer.

"But since then I have had no news about it. I do not know though. Maybe Napoli are still looking for a player with his characteristics in January.

"A transfer can be done, but Napoli have to accept the demands of Lyon and the player."

The 24-year-old has been ever-present for Lyon so far this season, but will miss their next match through suspension after being sent off in last weekend's crushing 5-1 defeat to Montpellier.
