Foot OL – Lacazette in the window, the OL transfer window promises fire! – Olympique Lyonnais

While Alexandre Lacazette’s return to OL delighted Lyon supporters, he surprised some observers who saw him going to a club that qualified for the European Cup. Beyond the love of the coat of arms, Jérôme Rothen sees in it the premises of an ambitious transfer window for OL.

After OL’s disappointing eighth place in Ligue 1, Jean-Michel Aulas wanted to rectify the situation for this summer transfer window. The least we can say is that he hit hard from the start. We are only at the beginning of June and it is already agreed that Alexandre Lacazette will postpone the Lyon jersey next season. A return well received by Lyon supporters, admiring this Gone from the formation which had scored 129 goals in 275 matches during his seven years at OL. They were not much to bet on a return of Lacazette this summer. At the end of his contract at Arsenal, he could aim higher with clubs qualified for the European cups next season, which is not the case with OL.

Lacazette has returned, so OL are preparing for a great summer

If for some the choice of Lacazette is curious, it above all reflects the love that the striker has for his training club. A link that did not prevent him from making sporting and financial concessions for next season. However, Jérôme Rothen thinks that cannot be enough. In his show Rothen ignites on RMC, he explained that Alexandre Lacazette had obtained guarantees from OL regarding sports policy this summer.

It’s good for the supporters of Lyon because he had to be reassured by the sports policy of the Lyonnais. […] He still has good years, he is not 35 years old. So he must have been reassured by the project. In my opinion, he feels ambition on the side of Olympique Lyonnais “, he said. We can therefore expect other great signings for the Rhone club, which will have to have a much better level to regain its luster and the C1. A competition that remains anchored in the spirit of Lacazette and what better than to play it with his favorite club?
