Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette can join PSG if the price is right - Aulas

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has told France Football he has no problem with Alexandre Lacazette joining Ligue 1 rivals Paris Saint-Germain if they pay the right transfer fee.

Lacazette, 26, had been widely expected to join Atletico Madrid, but the upholding of their transfer ban has ended that possibility until at least the winter window.

PSG have been linked with the France international, and Aulas said he would not refuse to sell to counterpart Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

"I know Nasser suggested to Noel Le Graet [president of the French Football Federation] that he is not investing that much in French players because he thought other presidents of French clubs looked badly upon it," Aulas said.

"I want him to know that if he makes an offer for Alexandre at least equal to that of the other clubs bidding for him, then Alex can go to Paris without problem.

"I am a businessman and a modern club president. Transfer money must be reinvested into French football, as I always did when we were at the peak of our powers.

"When transfer money is shared abroad, it strengthens our competitors instead."

With new sporting director Antero Henrique in place at the Parc des Princes, PSG are expected to be busy this summer and want to bring in support for main striker Edinson Cavani.
