At the end of his contract at Arsenal, Alexandre Lacazette was asked about a return to Lyon. The 30-year-old striker responded bluntly.
Lacazette cash for his return to Lyon
Recruited by Arsenal in 2017, Alexandre Lacazette comes to the end of his contract in June 2022. The striker is open to all options, both to an extension and to a departure from North London. However, the French center forward is less excited by a return to Olympique Lyonnais. The OL-trained player made it known during an interview with Telefoot. “It remains our training club, the club that we have supported since our childhood. We all got off to a good start in Lyon with a good image among the supporters. It may be a risk to come back and spoil this image. It’s a small danger, ”said the Gunners striker.
A future still unclear for the former OL
While the question of his future remains to be clarified, Alexandre Lacazette continues to see his playing time dwindle at Arsenal. This season, he took part in 11 games (479 minutes) of the Gunners for 5 starts. The former Olympique Lyonnais has three goals and an assist this season. At the end of the contract, it is of interest to certain European teams. Atlético Madrid, Manchester City and even Olympique de Marseille would follow his situation closely. He also says he is “flattered” by so much interest. ” That’s flattering. When they send something concrete … It’s nice to read, but I don’t get carried away. I’m waiting for the offers, ”said the former Baby Gone before placing a condition on his suitors. He dreams of a club “which [lui] trusted 100% and whose project is really interesting ”.
