Lyon star set to disappoint Chelsea and Arsenal

Samuel Umtiti is a hot property indeed but despite being offered lucrative deals from abroad, the youngster is set to sign a new deal with Hubert Fournier’s side

It appears that when it comes to matters pertaining to loyalty, Olympique Lyonnais players are top lads. After Alexandre Lacazette ended speculation linking him to a move away from Stade Gerland, young Samuel Umtiti is set to follow suit with the defender reportedly telling Les Gones president, Jean-Michel Aulas that he intends to stay with the Rhone giants for another season and help the club achieve its targets in Europe.

The news comes as a huge shock to the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal who had been actively following the player’s performances for several months and will now have to look elsewhere in a bid to find a player who fits the bill when it comes to being called the next Lillian Thuram.
