Lyon plan to re-evaluate their transfer strategy as fresh reports link Newcastle United's Jose Enrique with a move to the French club.
The left-back is believed to be a prime target for the Ligue 1 side tasked with replacing Aly Cissokho, who is rumoured to be heading in the opposite direction across the Channel during the window.
L'Equipe named Enrique as a priority signing yet the club admit they may be forced to review their stance on international players going into the new season.
Club chairman Jean-Michel Aulas admitted that the rigours of international football often leave players too tired to perform over the duration of a season.
He said: "We have to think about our future strategy. We had ambitions to win Le Championnat and we failed, so we have to set another strategy that can match our means.
"We can't have so many international players, who will play in June and whom we will ask to resume on June 29.
"It is impossible to have 20 international players with such a calendar."
