Ex-Arsenal captain Lacazette helping Lyon in transfer market

Olympique Lyon signing Corentin Tolisso says Alexandre Lacazette helped him decide to return from Bayern Munich.

The former Arsenal captain joined OL this summer in a Bosman transfer.

Tolisso said, "I spoke a lot with Alex (Lacazette). I don't think he's ever written to me as much in a month as in the past five years (laughs)!

"I also spoke a lot with Antho (Lopes). Alex's return has played a role, he's really a friend to me, outside of football.

"The fact that he's coming back, that we've done great things with OL previously, that was an added advantage in my decision-making."
