Lyon have rejected speculation of a swap deal with Valencia involving Fernando Morientes and Kim Kallstrom.
Rumours in Spain have suggested Valencia may be ready to offer Morientes as part of their bid to land Kallstrom (pictured).
Valencia are known to be keen on the Swedish midfielder and have had an ,é¼11million (£7.4million) offer knocked back by Lyon.
Lyon are not interested in selling Kallstrom, and also have dismissed any interest in signing former Real Madrid striker Morientes.
"We didn't make any offer for Morientes, and we have no contact with Valencia," said club spokesman Olivier Blanc.
"About Kallstrom (pictured), Valencia made an offer but we didn't follow it up."
