Lyon very close to completing the return of Lacazette and discussing with Tolisso!

FCM invites you to follow the transfer window of the competitors of Olympique de Marseille (LOSC, Stade Rennais, Lyon, AS Monaco, OGC Nice…) The Lyonnais would be very close to signing the return of Alexandre Lacazette from Arsenal!

This Thursday, huge Ligue 1 transfer window bomb launched by the newspaper L’Equipe! Alexandre Lacazette, in difficulty with Arsenal with whom he is at the end of his contract, should return to France! If he was mentioned among the tracks of OM this summer, he should finally return to his training club.

Lacazette, the big shot of Aulas

The sports daily explains in its article that Alexandre Lacazette was convinced by the management of Lyon to make his return after five years in the Premier League. The transfer is not yet official but should be imminent.

A huge blow from Lyon who left with a big handicap in this case. Indeed, the absence of European competition and especially of the Champions League was “prohibitive” for the French striker. Finally, he was able to be convinced to return to Les Gones.

Jean Michel Aulas does not intend to stop there because the midfielder, Corentin Tolisso could also make his return, free after the end of his contract at Bayern. However, the latter seems to have another priority as he explained to the daily L’Equipe: “I want to go to a club to play a major role. Keep earning trophies. England, with the intensity, would please me but I do not deny myself any championship. I know what I am capable of. I know how much the change of life, the change of air, will do me good. If OL is it possible? Today, I still want to play the Champions League and win it again. I want to make the best decision for me, my family and get out of this spiral”…

We want the DNA of Lyon training to be the watchword of the future — Aulas

“This DNA is one of our keys to building the new cycle. And to know where we are going, we must not forget where we come from. Work, training, transmission, respect for the coat of arms and values ​​of our OL, but also this typically Lyonnais mixture of humility and pride, this synthesis of local players, and others from elsewhere, young people who have the life ahead of them, and other more experienced ones who want to share: we have to return to the values ​​of the club, return to an OL identity, do whatever it takes to rebuild a conquering state of mind. We have already anticipated with the extension of Wendie Renard and Mohamed El Arouch and our determination to extend Maxence Caqueret and Rayan Cherki over the long term: we are building in this direction. We want the DNA of Lyon training to be the key word for the future. We will be vigilant on the profiles of our players who will join us, and will try to target in priority those whom we consider to be compatible with the philosophy and the spirit of the club that you embody yourselves by being the most unconditional supporters of our OL. » Jean Michel Aulas – Source: Open letter to supporters
