Lyon have rejected an offer of 35m euros (£29.3m) from Arsenal for France forward Alexandre Lacazette.

The 25-year-old scored 21 goals in 34 league appearances last season, and is under contract at Lyon until 2019.

In a statement on Twitter, the French club said “Lacazette is irreplaceable and one of the main leaders” in coach Bruno Genesio’s team.

Lyon denied a newspaper report saying they turned down an offer of 48m euros (£42.2m) from the Premier League side.
