OL made a remarkable first move on the transfer market by bringing Alexandre Lacazette back to the fold.

While waiting for the potential return of Corentin Tolisso, of which Jean-Michel Aulas dreams, Olympique Lyonnais can congratulate themselves on having brought back Alexandre Lacazette. At the end of his contract with Arsenal, the French international agreed to return to OL despite the lack of qualification for the European Cup. While waiting to see if the return of Lacazette will benefit Les Gones on the pitch, there is no doubt that the former Arsenal striker is doing a world of good for the Rhone club’s coffers. And as proof, according to information from Foot Mercato, 80% of pre-orders for the new Olympique Lyonnais jersey are in the name of Alexandre Lacazette. A dizzying figure which confirms the enthusiasm of Lyon supporters about the return of the 31-year-old striker.

The “Lacazette” jerseys are a hit

OL marketing manager Sam Primaut is delighted with such a success. “We announced his return concomitantly with the revelation of the home shirt. So there was an effect since the jersey ticks off everything that our historical supporters like. There was also a wink since the design resembled the one Alexandre wore during his last season at OL. So the fans were happy. There was a very strong start. People order the jerseys but we can’t put Lacazette’s number because we don’t have it yet. We have a strong demand. We are currently on stand-by. We will reprocess the requests when we have his shirt number. launched Foot Mercato the boss of marketing at OL, who is rubbing his hands in front of such success thanks to the return of Alexandre Lacazette to Les Gones. Let’s hope for the club chaired by Jean-Michel Aulas that the comeback of “General Lacazette” will experience similar success on the green rectangle on recovery.
