Lacazette rejects new Lyon contract


Alexandre Lacazette has turned down Lyon’s opening contract extension that contained a €70m (£58.7m) buy-out clause, reports L’Equipe, via Get French Football.


The France international was heavily linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 side over the summer with a host of clubs from the Premier League keen on signing Lacazette.


However, Lyon refused to sell the 25-year-old and are now keen to tie down his long-term future and make him the club’s highest paid player.
