Kim Kallstrom has denied reports that he has made a decision over his future.
Kim Kallstrom has denied reports that he has made a decision over his future, but admitted that moving to Spain was an attractive proposition.
The Swedish midfielder has been targeted by Valencia and the interest has seen him stall on signing a new deal with Lyon.
With an é¼11million (£7.4million) offer already having been refused by the French outfit, the Che are set to up their bid, but rumours suggest that Kallstrom has already decided what his next move will be.
"I have not signed anything with anyone yet," the 24-year-old told Aftonbladet.
"I have not renewed my contract with Lyon and have not agreed anything with Valencia.
"There is nothing more I can say, but playing in the Spanish league does attract me."
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has been infuriated by Valencia's handling of the situation and has hit out at the opening offer.
"I do not know whether we can call it a proposal," said Aulas. "We have received indirect offers from agents indicating that Valencia would pay us a transfer fee over four or five years.
"Do I look like an idiot?"
Meanwhile, Kallstrom has admitted he is happy with new Lyon coach Alain Perrin's decision to adopt a 4-4-2 formation.
Kallstrom told Sportbladet: "I am happy to play in a classical 4-4-2 system. Additionally, we play similarly in the national team."
