The talented 22-year-old has held talks with Sochaux chairman Jean-Claude Plessis to confirm his departure from Stade Bonal on Wednesday.
Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas is in advanced talks with his Sochaux counterpart over the transfer, although no deal has been agreed as yet.
Bordeaux have also been interested in Meriem but it seems as though Lyon are in pole position and he should move if the clubs agree on a fee which is believed to be around £4.6 million (7.5 million Euros).
