According to reports in France Football, Chelsea want to sign Park Chu-Young from Monaco, but have yet to reach an agreement with the French side regarding a deal for the South Korean striker.
Yet a Chelsea source insisted: "We did receive some correspondence with regard to Park but that is as far it went.
"It is wrong to think we want to sign him or suggest there have been any meetings with his agents. He is not about to become a Chelsea player."
The French club announced the capture on their official website on Tuesday, but did not disclose financial details of the deal.
However, French sport daily L'Equipe claim Lyon will have the option to sign Diakhate on a permanent contract for €8million (£6.6m) at the end of the season.
Senegal international Diakhate, who had been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, joined Dynamo three years ago from boyhood club Nancy but has been unable to hold down a regular spot in the first team.
The 26-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Lyon's Ligue 1 rivals St Etienne, helping the French side avoid relegation.
Diakhate's transfer deadline day capture sees him become Lyon's third major summer signing following the arrival of winger Jimmy Briand from Rennes and former Bordeaux playmaker Yoann Gourcuff.
Morientes told COPE radio on Monday he rejected a chance to play for Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon and offers from Mexico, Qatar and Dubai to work as a TV commentator.
Partnering Raul Gonzalez in attack, Morientes helped Madrid to three Champions League titles, two Spanish leagues and two Intercontinental Cups from 1997 to 2003.
He led Monaco to the 2004 Champions League final before joining Liverpool in 2005, where he scored 12 goals in 61 appearances. He also played for Valencia before spending his last season at Marseille.
Morientes, 34, is fourth on Spain's all-time leading scorers list with 27 goals in 47 appearances.
Since i'm at work i cannot really make the post as good as he deserves... but I really think he deserves a picspam!!
