Lyon are reportedly interested in signing Crvena Zvezda midfielder Dusan Basta, according to Serbian Daily Blic.

Basta's manager Milan Calasan gave an interview in Blic claiming that several French clubs are interested in signing the 22-year-old, including Nantes, Nice and Lyon.

"Nantes and Nice would like to sign Dusan Basta," said Calasan.

"The latest news are that even Lyon started to get interested in him. Meanwhile [Crvena Zvezda] president Dragan Stojkovic is not ready yet to let him leave during the winter transfer period.

"The clubs I mentioned would like to sign Basta already now and they will certainly try to negotiate a deal with Stojkovic."

Basta - who has been tagged the "Serbian Nedved" - became a regular feature in the Crvena Zvezda first team in 2004/5 before earning a call up to the Serbian National team making his debut against Spain in March 2005.
