Breel Embolo an alternative for Lyon in Alexander Lacazette pursuit

Kicker cite L’Équipe that Ligue 1 side Lyon are interested in signing Borussia Mönchengladbach forward Breel Embolo.

Discussions between Lyon and representatives of Embolo have already taken place with the Switzerland international seen as an alternative to Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette, who remains Lyon’s priority signing.

With a contract expiring in 2023, it’s widely reported that Embolo would be allowed to leave Gladbach if they’re unable to reach an agreement for a contract extension to avoid risk losing the 25-year-old on a free transfer next summer.

Embolo has scored eight and created three in 28 Bundesliga games this season.
