French Ligue giants Olympique Lyon held preliminary talks with Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side FC Ifeanyi Ubah over the services of Stephen Eze, AOIFootball.com reports.
Lyon scouted the CHAN Eagles lanky defender at the ongoing West African Football Union (WAFU) tournament, who has been impressive, and also emerged as one of the stars of the Nigerian team, who are yet to concede a goal.
Eze was at his best at the 2-0 win over Ghana which sealed their progress to the semifinals. The game was the third in a row where he impressed the scouts of Lyon.
Talks were believed to still be at preliminary stages but Eze could have trials with Lyon by December ahead of the opening of the transfer window in January next year.
