After Alexandre Lacazette''s retirement by Arsenal, he hasn''t wasted any time finding a new club.
Arsenal confirmed last week that the French international had left the Emirates Stadium.
The 30-year-old striker was out of contract in North London this summer and after a difficult season on the goalscoring front, the Gunners were ruled against extending his contract.
Lacazette, who scored two Premier League goals in open play this season, has already established a new club.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the facts are correct.
On Wednesday, an Italian journalist disclosed that he was infected with a medical with Lyon''s former club.
And Romano expressed his gratitude for Lacazette, who sabotaged Arsenal in 2017 for about 50 million euros, who joined the Ligue 1 outfit, which won the championship for the last season.
Alexandre Lacazette has signed the contract as a new OL player in the last few hours. Medical also successfully completed the official announcement today. #OL It''s done and confirmed, and Lacazette is back at Olympique Lyonnais.
It will be very interesting to see how he performs during his return to France.
Everybody knows the Premier League is a tougher division, but if he finds his goalscoring form again, then it makes you wonder if the Arsenal system was incompatible for the striker.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stuttered to score consistently under the Spanish manager, but scored 13 goals in his first five months as a Barcelona player.
If Lacazette gets away from the Gunners, then critics will say it because French football is more straightforward, but maybe, just maybe, they will be playing for a manager who knows how to get the player fired again.
