Lyon's France international left back Eric Abidal remains undecided on where his future lies.
The 27-year-old has just over 18 months remaining on his existing contract and Lyon are believed to be keen to tie him down to a fresh long-term deal.
Abidal has revealed a number of foreign clubs are tracking his services, with Arsenal reportedly firm admirers of the defender.
The former Lille stopper has held talks with chairman Jean-Michel Aulas, but is waiting for concrete offers before deciding his future.
"I haven taken any decision about my future for the moment," Abidal told AFP.
"I have met with the coach and the chairman. It was an interesting talk.
"They want to propose me a contract extension. I'm not ruling out this offer.
"I know a number of foreign clubs are following me. I don't have a specific country that I want to play in.
"I am waiting for concrete moves because for the moment I haven't received offers. I am waiting for one from Lyon.
"For the moment I don't know if I want to leave or stay. I will have to make a choice. I just hope I will make a good one."
