Shots fired apparently, as Lyon President Jean Michel Aulas took to Twitter and dismissed all the rumours linking striker Alexandre Lacazette to Premier League giants Liverpool in a not very subtle manner: “Your information is false. Liverpool have never called us and [remind me] what European cup [they are playing in next season] and they have neither the means [to sign the player] nor the interest.”
The tweet, in French, can be seen below.
@OL_Plus vos informations sont bidons Liverpool n’a jamais appelé et joue dans quelle coupe d’Europe et n’en a ni les moyens ni l’intérêt 😇
