Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed that the club has rejected a massive bid of €50m for star striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Lacazette is one of the top transfer targets that are rumoured and was a long-standing target for Arsenal as Arsene Wenger is a huge admirer of the striker.

The Gunners have made a €35m bid earlier in the summer which was rejected by the club which Lyon confirmed later on their social media. Arsenal then went on to sign one of the best Spanish strikers Lucas Perez from Deportivo.

The player himself has recently turned down the speculations surrounding his future at the club after his goal-scoring streak at the start of the season as he admitted that he would be staying at the club for the rest of the season.

Aulas told French broadcaster SFR Sport,  “We’ve refused an offer of 50 million euros from West Ham for Alexandre Lacazette. We’ve even turned down more for him.

“The objective I’ve set is to refuse offers because when you can refuse offers of €50m, €60m, or €70m that means you’re very strong and that, financially, you don’t need it.

Lyon who finished as runners-up in Ligue 1 last season are keen to win the league this season as Lacazette remains their star player. The French striker has netted 21 times last season and have already scored six times this season before being taken off last weekend after suffering an injury.
