Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas has just given a huge chunk of information, as he has said that a possible exit for Alexandre Lacazette might be on the cards “if Barcelona or Manchester United make an offer”, as quoted by DailyMail.
The president stated that the club will not stand in the way of a possible move if the striker asks to leave for any of Europe’s elite clubs. The team had rejected a £29.4 million bid from Arsenal last season but are inclined towards agreeing to a transfer deal this time around.
The player has been heavily linked with the likes of Arsenal and West Ham for a while now and he recently mentioned that it is the time for a ‘change of scenery’ now.

With a history of high profile sales of some big names in recent times, Aulas mentioned that he would not stand in between a player and his dream destination for the right price.
He further added, “If Barcelona or Manchester United one day make an offer commensurate with what Alex is worth to our club, no-one will stand in its way, Alex has wanted to play in a great club and Lyon does not object. We are perfectly in line.”
West Ham United were interested in the player last summer and with his goal tally at 21 this season and open to a move, many more Premier League clubs will be setting an eye on him as a primary target. It was further reported that Lacazette believes “it is the right moment to leave” the French giants.
The French Striker further added,”I think that this summer I will need a change of scenery and discover something else, still with the idea of advancing and progressing in terms of football and as a person.I will continue to work, in the hope that good opportunities will come this summer.”
