Lyon want Atleti’s Hernandez brothers

Lyon want brothers Lucas and Theo Hernandez from Atletico Madrid as part of any deal for striker Alexandre Lacazette, say reports.

AS has followed-up on an initial report from France Football Lyon’s owner Jen-Michel Aulas wants the French defenders – who he regards as two of the emerging stars in European football – at the Ligue 1 club.

The reports continue that Atleti would be extremely unlikely to sell either player never mind both, although they are keen on pressing forward with their €60m offer for Lacazette, who’s agent has denied an agreement has already been struck.

The 25-year-old striker has netted 23 league goals in 23 starts this season and is reported to be keen to further his career in either England or Spain, with rumours he could replace a potentially outgoing Antoine Griezmann at Los Rojiblancos.
