"I've seen it from afar, followed it on the internet," Gonalons told Lyon's official website.
"There are lots of rumours, even if certain things are true. Playing for a club like Lyon, I know that I am in the public eye, that other big clubs watch us.
"I know the club have confidence in me and that is important. I am concentrating only on OL, but in football anything can happen very quickly."
Gonalons scored four goals in 41 games for Lyon last season.
