Aulas: Lacazette departure simply impossible

Alexandre Lacazette is unsure over his long-term future at Lyon, but the club's president is adamant he will be with them next season.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has described the possibility of Alexandre Lacazette leaving the Ligue 1 leaders as "simply impossible".

Lacazette, who has scored 25 goals this season for Lyon, stated earlier this week that he feels Lyon may sell him if the right offer comes along following intense speculation over his future earlier in the year.

But, replying to a post on Twitter from French website reporting Lacazette's words, Aulas insisted: "It is simply impossible... he will be with us at the Stade des Lumieres [Lyon's new stadium set to open in 2015] and the Champions League."
