Gonalons Still Open To Napoli Switch

Lyon captain Maxime Gonalons had admitted that he is still open to a move to Napoli at the end of the season after his proposed January transfer collapsed.

Gonalons looked set to join Rafa Benitez’s men before Lyon pulled the plug on the proposed deal.

Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas however was adamant to keep hold of their skipper but Gonalons has stated that he may still make a move to Italy if Napoli reignites their interest later this year.

 "Napoli's offer was very interesting and I certainly thought about it," he told reporters.

"In football, what's true one day might not be the case on the next. I will continue to give my best for Lyon. I am the captain and I have to show the example. Today, I'm in Lyon. But tomorrow, no one know what will happen.”

"When big clubs like Napoli come in for you, you ask yourself questions. There have been discussions and decisions have been taken. The President [Jean-Michel Aulas] closed the door despite a big offer from Napoli.”

"He wouldn't let me go. I have to accept that - I didn't want to cause issues for the club."
