Lyon's reported interest in Genoa's Giandomenico Mesto has been rejected by the player's agent.
The French giants have been associated with the midfielder whose future is now uncertain after the dismissal of Gian Piero Gasperini.
However, representative Moreno Roggi has today dismissed the rumours of a January exit for his client.
"I can honestly say that there is nothing with Lyon," the agent told TMW on Monday afternoon.
It remains to be seen whether Mesto tactically fits in with the plans of new boss Davide Ballardini.
