a Nothing is ever sure in football but we will do everything to keep Alexandre with us,a Aulas told Canal+. a a 50m would not be enough, that is not the price. I have never spoken with [the PSG president] Nasser al-Khelaifi about Alexandre Lacazette and I do not get the feeling, when I listen to Laurent Blanc, that he wants to sign him.a

The 23-year old is the top scorer in the French league having scored 27 goals this season. The striker helped Lyon to the second place in the league, 8 points behind champions PSG with still one more game to go.

Clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal are in the need to sign a new striker and the 23-year old will fit the bill. However, with Ibrahimovic and Cavani already in the roster, it is highly unlikely that PSG will spend such a huge amount to sign another striker. The French champions also have to cope with the pressure of adhering to the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.
