Lyon President: Lyon Confirm Arsenal Have Made Contact For Lacazette

Arsenal have made contact for French striker Alexandre Lacazette, Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas has confirmed.
 The French club’s president said: “Now, I will also be listening to what Alexandre has to say. I saw Arsene [Wenger], during the match between France and England. I was with Gerard Houllier [Lyon advisor] and I was led to be believed that he said to Gerard that there could be interest from Arsenal.  
“But it is premature to say that a deal will be done. The first thing that needs to happen is that we have to do a very big deal before. We cannot let a player of his quality leave without having a replacement for him.”
Atletico Madrid is also interested in Lacazette.

Although due to their current transfer ban, upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the Spanish giants are unable to sign and register any players this summer.

The Spanish club could however acquire Lacazette and loan him back to Lyon, before registering him as their man once the ban has ran its course.
