The pair are reported to have been on the verge of making a move away from Stade Gerland for some time, with switches to Italy and Germany also mooted.
Lyon concede that there are plenty of teams monitoring the duo, with English clubs among them.
They are, however, keen to point out that no agreements have been put in place as yet.
On Lisandro, club chairman Jean-Michel Aulas told tuttomercatoweb.com: "It is not true that Lisandro has already said farewell to Lyon fans. There has been a misunderstanding.
"I am waiting on news from Italy and England.
"Juventus and Fiorentina? I know the presidents of both clubs and neither has contacted us directly."
On Bastos, he added: "I think he will leave in January.
"He is in contact with German, English and Brazilian clubs."
