Chelsea close in on world class deal as French boss announces he will sell for right price

Lyon manager Hubert Fournier has conceded that if the French side will sell Chelsea target Alexander Lacazette for the right price.

With several Premier League clubs including Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United interested in Lacazette, the admission from Fournier comes a huge boost to the possibility of an English club luring the 24-year-old.

Fournier told French newspaper L’Equipe: “Of course, if a €50-60m (£35-42m) bid was tabled, I will no doubt have to prepare for this and wish him luck, but I really feel like he wants to stay.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
