Lyon demand €48m from Arsenal for star striker

Ligue 1 giants Lyon have set a €48 million price tag on the Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette according to the Mirror.

The report states that Lyon rejected a €35 million bid from the Gunners yesterday but will be willing to do business at the right price.

However, Lyon released a statement on their official Twitter account confirming that they turned down an offer from Arsenal and said that Lacazette is ‘irresistible.’

“The truth is that Arsenal made a formal offer of €35m (£29m) to which Lyon have not responded for this one reason: Lyon will keep Lacazette, who is irreplaceable and one of the leading players in Bruno Genesio’s squad,”

The Daily Mail also state that Lyon have no intention of selling their star striker having already raised £21 million after sellingSamuel Umtiti to Barcelona.

Lacazette has scored 23 goals and provided four assists in 44 appearances for Lyon in all competitions this season. The 25-year-old has racked up a total of 72 goals in 172 appearances for the Ligue 1 giants since graduating from Lyon’s academy in 2010.
