San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch wants Brandon Aiyuk to remain with the franchise for the long haul.

"Our wish is he is here for the rest of his career," Lynch said Monday, according to Clayton Holloway of NFL Network. "We are working through that."

Aiyuk's agent shut down rumors that his client requested a trade from the 49ers earlier this month. Aiyuk has been seeking a contract extension since the end of the 2023 season.

Lynch also seemingly confirmed that he's received trade calls for the wideout but downplayed their impact.

"Sure," Lynch added. "We receive calls for a lot of players."

The 26-year-old is entering the final year of his rookie contract and said in March, "I'm trying to get what I deserve."

Lynch noted that he and the receiver are having "good talks," according to The Athletic's Matt Barrows.

Aiyuk had the best season of his career in 2023, recording a career-high 1,342 yards on 75 catches.
