Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has told interested parties to forget about making a move for Alexandre Lacazette.

The 23-year-old has been in superb form in recent seasons and is attracting interest from a number of top European clubs, most notably from Italy and England, with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal keen.

Another club interested have been Liverpool, who are thought to have made slight contract over the players availability in recent weeks.

However, Aulus, who is a keen admirer of the striker, having watching him score 19 goals in 20 Ligue 1 games this season, has warned clubs off making a move.

“I don’t think there will be any movement for [Lacazette]. Our goal is to become a top European club in the next five years, and that’s why we don’t want to sell him,” the Daily Star quotes him as saying.

“I spoke with Man City, but it was about other topics and not a transfer. There will be no departures in the winter and I also think the same in the summer.”
