Ask every Arsenal fan and you will get told Wenger must sign a striker this summer. Fortunately we have been linked with the signing of many. However, Lyon presiden Jean-Michael Aulas has revealed Arsenal have not made a bid for French international striker Alexandre Lacazette insists Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, and says the Lyon striker will not be leaving the club.
Lacazette has been heavily linked with a move away from Lyon all summer on a number of occasions over the past couple of years after finding the back of the net 48 times in two seasons.
There has been interest from the English Premier League for the 25-year-old, with the French Ligue 1 outfit confirming in May that they had rejected a £31m bid from Premier League star West Ham for the Lyon striker.
According to latest report, Arsenal has been linked with a move for the Super star striker, who has won 10 international caps for the French international team, but unfortunately missed out on this summer’s Euro 2016 squad.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, however said there had been no bids from Arsenal and made it known he has spoken to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger at the European Championships.
“I saw Arsene during France matches and he has not told me,” Aulas said in L’Equipe.
“I don’t think it’s something and it seems Alex wants to spend this season with Lyon in the new stadium.
“He wants to know an adventure in the Champions League could be much better than last season. I think he will stay with us and we are very happy.”
