France international, Alexandre Lacazette has completed a transfer move back to his former Lyon.

This comes as Lacazette departs Arsenal after a three-year deal at the North London side.

Lyon have a special impart in Lacazette’s career, as he joined the club in 2003 as a 12-year-old.

Lacazette would go on to sign for Arsenal in a £53million deal in 2017 but brought his five-year spell at the North London club to an end by running down his contract, allowing him to return home to Lyon on a free.

Aside from the Gunners, Lyon is the only club Lacazette has played for in his professional career and he has been training with them since choosing not to extend his contract with the Gunners.

During Lacazette’s unveiling on Thursday, Lyon shared a 71-second video via Twitter, which showed Lacazette walking into the dressing room to pull on the shirt once more, before walking out onto the pitch at the Groupama Stadium.

Lacazette is the fourth player in Lyon’s all-time scoring charts, having netted 129 goals in 275 matches.
