ARSENAL'S chances of signing Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette have suffered a blow after the French club's president revealed he is confident the France worldwide will not be leaving the Ligue 1 club this summer.

Lacazette was expected to move to Atletico Madrid this summer, but Diego Simeone's side have been punished by a six-month ban on transfers for breaching Federation Internationale de Football Association rules over the signing of young players.

The 26-year-old scored 28 goals in 30 games last season, becoming one of the most wanted strikers in Europe. And when asked whether Lacazette might join Atletico in January, Aulas added: "It's possible". "He wants to leave and we want to keep him, but the decision is not made".

Lyon are still keen on signing Gunners' forward Olivier Giroud, who was expected to a makeweight in a Lacazette transfer.

Olympique Lyon surprised everyone on Friday afternoon when they announced on their twitter account that a press conference would take place at 17:00 with the president of the club, Jean-Michael Aulas and manager, Bruno Genesio in order to introduce a new player. "If there are arrivals at Arsenal, perhaps Olivier would like to return to France".

Diaz, a Dominican Republic global, only made 14 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos last season but did manage to return five goals.
