Juventus striker David Trezeguet is edging ever closer to a move away from Turin after accepting compliments from Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas.

The 31-year-old striker has fallen out with Juventus Coach Claudio Ranieri after he substituted him during the Bianconeri's Champions League tie with Chelsea last week.

Trezeguet told French newspaper L'Equipe he was puzzled and disappointed by Ranieri's decision to replace him with eight minutes remaining and Juventus in need of a goal.

Ranieri later called the former Monaco youngster a “spoilt child” and dropped him from the Juventus squad that beat Bologna on Saturday.

Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas yesterday expressed his interest in signing Trezeguet through an interview with Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.

Trezeguet responded this morning on his website, writing of his respect for Aulas and his admiration of what he has accomplished at French champions Lyon.

Juventus are reportedly lining up Atalanta striker Sergio Floccari and Udinese forward Fabio Quagliarella as Trezeguet's replacement.

Trezeguet will be a hard act to follow should he leave Juventus. He is the most prolific foreigner goalscorer in the history of the Bianconeri with 131 goals in 222 appearances for the club.
