Arsenal have been handed a massive transfer boost as Arsene Wenger could finally get his long term target Alexandre Lacazette this summer as he will be allowed to leave the club.
Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has indicated if the right fee is offered for him he would be allowed and Arsenal have been put on red alert.
The 25-year-old is a product of Lyon’s academy; he has scored 127 in 274 appearances, Aulas said in a press conference on Tuesday morning that the time could come this summer.
‘Alex had a good option with a club that is in his heart,’ Aulas said. ‘If the club of his heart is able to match our demands – as Barcelona did last season for Sam Umtiti – then things will go well. Otherwise, it will depend on our other business.
‘But if any players feel that this club is not big enough for them, we will look for others who are just as strong but have the right mentality as well.
‘If there are departures, this money will be used to recruit new players.’
‘Personally, I have great esteem for Bruno but there will be a meeting of the board to be held after the Nice match to validate my proposals,’ he said.
‘That does not prevent me from saying I have no doubt that he will be the coach of OL next season.’
