Gonalons has been linked with a move away from Stade de Gerland for some time, with the France international reportedly targeted by Arsenal and Napoli.

However, the 24-year-old insists that staying in Lyon for the foreseeable future will benefit his career.

"Things are clear," he told RMC. "I'm going to stay at Lyon next season because I still have things to learn and things to prove.

"I want to win with Lyon. I have been approached this summer and it's always good to know that you're been followed by great clubs."
