The French champions have been searching for a new striker all summer after the departure of Brazilian star Sonny Anderson to Villarreal.
A number of strikers including Real Madrid's Fernando Morientes, Ajax ace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Cameroon star Samuel Eto'o and Liverpool's Emile Heskey have all been linked with moves to the club, but as yet they have failed to bring in a new forward.
Lyon are now reported to have targeted Peruvian Pizarro and have reportedly made enquiries about his possible availability.
Pizarro's future at Bayern is uncertain with the club chasing Deportivo La Coruna hit-man Roy Makaay and Monaco powerhouse Shabani Nonda.
Should Bayern land either of their targets it will push Pizarro down the pecking order at the Olympic Stadium and Lyon are ready to offer him an escape route to France.
