Lacazette will cost over €50m, says Aulas

The prolific attacker has been linked with a host of clubs following his impressive 2014-15 campaign, but his current club have no intention of selling him

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has stressed that Alexandre Lacazette will not leave the club for anything less than €50 million.

The 23-year-old has been in sublime form in 2014-15 and currently leads the Ligue 1 goalscoring charts with 27 goals in 33 appearances.

Lacazette has been linked with a summer switch to clubs such as Liverpool, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain, but Aulas is desperate to hold on to his star player.

“We will do everything within our powers to hold on to Alexandre,” the Lyon supremo told Canal+.

“You never have any certainties in football, but we are determined to keep him here.

“A transfer fee of €50m would not be enough for an attacker like him. He is priceless.

“PSG? I have never spoken with Nasser Al Khelaifi about Alexandre. And I never get the impression PSG want him whenever I speak with Laurent Blanc.”

Lacazette’s contract with Lyon runs until June 2018.
