Lacazette with Mariano Diaz, OL version back to the future

To strengthen in attack, OL are thinking very hard of Alexandre Lacazette, but are also ready to bring back another former scorer.

Olympique Lyonnais is at an important turning point in its history. For the first time, Jean-Michel Aulas has shown signs of fatigue this season, particularly in relation to the behavior of his supporters, but also to the once again disappointing results of his training. OL will still have to clean house for lack of participation in a prestigious European Cup. The coach is suspended, but at the level of the players, no sale is to be ruled out. Except for the young people of the club, who are at the center of the new project, like Maxence Caqueret’s contract extension. And to supervise the promising new generation knocking at the door, OL intend to stop taking on experienced foreign players, as was the case with Jérôme Boateng and Xherdan Shaqiri recently. The club’s alumni, who left for other places after their revelation in Lyon, could return. Who from the Lyonnais gang can really come back? Corentin Tolisso asks himself the question at the end of his contract, Samuel Umtiti is pushed out by FC Barcelona, ​​but it is Alexandre Lacazette who is currently negotiating to return to Groupama Stadium.

Mariano Diaz if Lacazette fails?

To form an attack with another former Lyonnais, Mariano Diaz? OL are in any case one of the clubs interested in the Real Madrid striker, who still has a year of contract but is pushed towards the exit. According to the Turkish press, Mariano Diaz has many touches, including with Fenerbahçe, but also training in Italy and Spain. In France, OL have their chances for a player who would be able to replace Moussa Dembélé. The effectiveness of the player of Dominican origin had struck the spirits in Lyon, even if the war of egos with Memphis Depay had ended up hurting the locker room. In any case, on the side of the Lyon recruiters, it is proof that we are not betting everything on Alexandre Lacazette either, who will inevitably also have interesting proposals with the end of his contract at Arsenal.
