Alexandre Lacazette: Arsenal striker wanted by former club Lyon as he enters last six months of contract

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed the club’s interest in re-signing Alexandre Lacazette from Arsenal this summer.

Lacazette’s Arsenal contract expires at the end of the season and he is free to speak to clubs outside England about a pre-contract agreement.

Aulas, speaking at the unveiling of new loan signing from Tottenham – Tanguy Ndombele – also admitted they are looking into the return of Karim Benzema from Real Madrid in the summer too.


“It’s Lacazette, he interests us because he marked this club,” Aulas said.

“It’s a profile that interests us and we have always been in contact with him.

“This is part of the guiding ideas brought by (new sporting director) Bruno Cheyrou. In our context, yes it (Lacazette) is more accessible than Benzema.

“We have to try to see if we can do it as a free player but we will not be alone.”
