Lyon warn clubs off Alexandre Lacazette

Published 1 Comments

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulus has claimed that Alexandre Lacazette is 'priceless', and warns that the club will attempt to resist any summer move for the highly sought-after striker.

The French forward, 23, is one of Europe's hottest prospects following his impressive season in Ligue 1, during which he has scored 27 league goals, and has attracted the attention of a host of big-name clubs.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are all tracking the player's situation, though according to Daily Mail, Aulus is confident, despite the considerable competition, that their prized asset will remain at Lyon.

"You are never sure of anything in football," he said, "but I am sure that Lacazette will stay with us.

"Even €50 million is not enough for him as he is priceless."

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain, whom Lyon finished behind in second with Lacazette spearheading their title challenge, are also rumoured to be admirers of league's top goalscorer. Lyon's president, however, has dismissed such talk.

“I never talked about Lacazette with Nasser Al-Khelaifi [PSG president]," he continued, "and I do not think [PSG manager, Laurent] Blanc has asked for him."

Lacazette has three years remaining of his current contract with Lyon, though a move to a leading European club could prove irresistible if the price is right.
