Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala is discussing a move to Lyon. 

The France international joined City from Porto for £42million and City are looking to recoup around £18m now.

Mangala still has two years left on his contract and spent last season on loan at Valencia though they failed to take up their option of making the move permanent.

Lyon are understood to be keen to sign Mangala on an initial loan but City want to sell to help offset their other spending. 

Newcastle United had also shown interest in signing Mangala however the 26-year-old travelled to Lyon on Tuesday ahead of expected talks.

City want a £10m fee from Sevilla also for Nolito, while they are looking for over £20m for Kelechi Iheanacho who has interest from Swansea City, Leicester and West Ham.

Meanwhile, Dani Alves is expected to discuss a two year contract with City once he has clarified his departure from Juventus. His representatives have held talks about cancelling his contract in Turin by mutual consent.
