L’Equipe report this afternoon that Alexandre Lacazette is set to rejoin former club Lyon.
He left L’OL in the summer of 2017, signing for Arsenal in a deal that cost the club around £50m.

Since then, he has made 206 appearances in red and white, scoring 76 goals and providing 30+ assists.
Last season was his least productive in the five years he’s been at the club, with just 6 goals in 36 appearances in all competitions.
After the Everton game on the final day of the season, he spent time on the pitch with family members – all sporting Lacazette 9 shirts – and throughout the campaign, despite many questions about the Frenchman’s future, Mikel Arteta never gave any hint Arsenal would offer new terms.
L’Equipe say an announcement is ‘imminent’, and we’ll confirm here as and when it happens.
