LYON, France, July 26 – French club Lyon said Tuesday they had rejected a 3.9 Billion Kenya Shillings (35 million) bid from Arsenal for star striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Lyon called the 25-year-old, who has long been linked with a move to the Premier League having scored 48 goals over the last two seasons, “irreplacable” and said he would not be sold.

In May, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said the club had dismissed a 40-million-euro offer from West Ham United for the prolific French international.
