Lyon midfielder Florent Malouda has admitted he would be tempted by a move to Arsenal or Juventus.
Malouda is under contract at Lyon until 2011 but he has identified Juventus and Arsenal as the two clubs that would attract him the most if he decided to leave the French champions.
“When I signed a contract extension last summer, it was so I would not be asked about my future during this season,” he told France Football.
“The chairman and I have set a meeting for the end of the current season, but I have a long-term contract at Lyon.
“I will leave only if I can find better somewhere else, but there are not so many clubs better than Lyon nowadays.
“Is it really a good idea to leave one year before Euro 2008?
“I am attracted by Italy and the English league.
“Juventus and Arsenal? These are exciting clubs because they have a past and a culture of their own, but there is nothing concrete with those clubs.
“It is possible they are following me, but since I play in the UEFA Champions League I know a lot of clubs are following me.
“Lyon may be stronger next season, in which case I could leave in 2008, after Euro.”
Malouda also played down talk of a possible link with Chelsea, admitting that with the growing uncertainty over the future of coach Jose Mourinho, he was unsure which direction the club was heading in.
“Could my friend Didier Drogba attract me to Chelsea? There are a lot of uncertainties there,” he said.
“Today can you say Mourinho will still be their coach next term?”
