Lyon target Khazri looks set for Roma switch

12 August 2013 11:07

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas believes transfer target Wahbi Khazri will sign for Serie A side Roma.

The Bastia attacking midfielder has courted interest throughout the close-season after a host of impressive performances for the Ligue 1 outfit last season.

Lyon, who finished third in the league last season, were reportedly one of the teams interested in the 22-year-old's services.

But Aulas believes an agreement will be reached with Rudi Garcia's side.

"I fear Bastia and Roma is agreed but I like (him) a lot," Aulas wrote during a question and answer session on Twitter.

Lyon have been busy reshaping their squad during the transfer window, making 11 signings during the close-season.

The seven-time top-flight champions started their Ligue 1 campaign with a 4-0 rout of Nice on Saturday.
