Lyon are ready to bid for Manchester United defender Eric Bailly.

The Ivorian is expected to be cashed in at the end of the season after failing to convince manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is eager to take Bailly off United’s hands, though will face competition from France.

L’Equipe says Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas is set to move for the defender.

Aulas would hope United will accept selling at a loss of the €38m they paid Villarreal for Bailly in 2016.
