Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, who recently signed a contract extension with Les Gones, had told Le Progres that his future was never in any doubt, despite being linked with Liverpool and Newcastle this transfer window.
He had the following to say:
“I was under contract, so there was never anything there. There was lots of speculation with regards to a possible transfer, but I wanted to progress in the club where I was made. To have responsibility interested me. I had no reasons to leave.”
