The return of Alexandre Lacazette to Olympique Lyonnais gives wings to OL supporters, who are now waiting for Corentin Tolisso to imitate his former teammate and come home.
OL started their transfer market with a bang by signing Alexandre Lacazette until 2025, the striker left free by Arsenal having not hesitated long before accepting the offer of his training club while several European clubs were reaching out to him. Once this matter is settled, Jean-Michel Aulas and his chief negotiator, Vincent Ponsot, are working on another file, that of Corentin Tolisso. Also free of any contract since leaving Bayern Munich, the 27-year-old midfielder has not yet decided where he will play next season, but the one who left Lyon in 2017 for 41.5 million euros is a very hot OL track. It has been months since this return of coconut is in the air, the Rhone leaders even talked about it on the last day of the winter transfer window, but this time the pieces of the puzzle are falling into place.
Corentin Tolisso and Lyon, it can be discussed!

If several Lyonnais insiders, on condition of anonymity, confirm that the signing of Corentin Tolisso is imminent, which is to be taken with a grain of salt at a time when a lot of people call themselves a transfer window specialist, Fabien Guyon, journalist and columnist for France Bleu Montpellier, is also quite optimistic about the possibility of the midfielder coming , but he remains cautious. ” OL are continuing discussions with Corentin Tolisso. The 27-year-old, who is highly coveted abroad (Arsenal, MUFC, Fenerbahçe), is thinking about his future, but does not rule out the idea of a return to Lyon. JM Aulas and Alexandre Lacazette try to convince him “, announces Fabien Guyot, who therefore confirms that negotiations exist between the Tolisso clan and Olympique Lyonnais. On the side of Groupama Stadium, we cross our fingers while waiting for the reconstitution of the Lacazette-Tolisso duo.
