Lyon are hoping for a dream reunion with former striker Karim Benzema, according to sporting director Juninho.
The Real Madrid star began his career with the French outfit but left for the Bernabeu in 2009 and has since played more than 500 games for Los Blancos in a sparkling career delivering nine major trophies.
But his boyhood club have now pleaded with the 32-year-old to end his playing days at the Stade de Gerland as they brace for interest in their talisman Memphis Depay from Barcelona.
