Gerard Houllier has confirmed he still hopes to bring Rangers midfielder Jeremy Clement back to Lyon.
Clement, who left the French champions for Ibrox last summer, is keen to return to Ligue 1 before the close of the transfer window.
Paris Saint Germain are also interested and the player has suggested he would prefer to be reunited with Paul Le Guen at Parc des Princes.
But, after completing the signing of Milan Baros from Aston Villa, Houllier is not giving up on his pursuit of Clement.
While the Lyon coach acknowledged the competition from PSG, he underlined his club's willingness to secure a deal.
"Is Jeremy Clement still happening?" said Houllier.
"The answer is yes, but we are in competition with another great club."
