Arsenal forward, Alexandre Lacazette says he never cut contact with his former club, Olympique Lyon.

The 30-year-old attacker’s current contract with the London team expires at the end of the season and he is expected to leave Mikel Arteta’s side as a free agent this summer.

Lacazette joined Arsenal from Lyon in 2018 for £46.5 million, and is now into the final months of the five-year contract he signed.

“I’m in discussion with a lot of clubs, I’m open. I never cut contact with Lyon since I left. I try to go back to the club once or twice a year to see the medical staff because we’re really close. So yes, now Lyon know that I’m free, they’ve come by the information.” He said to Canal Plus.

The Lyon born forward has found the back of the net six times in 31 appearances this season. He missed Saturday’s defeat to Southampton after testing positive and is facing a race against time to be involved in Wednesday’s Premier League game against Chelsea.

Lacazette is not giving up on the idea that he could be play in Europe’s elite competition next season.

“It’s a bit more complicated. I want to play in Europe. It’s been a long time since I’ve played in the Champions League too, I miss it. It’s a bit complicated. Nothing is impossible in life, but it’s a bit more complicated. He concluded.
