Lyon has officially confirmed that Chelsea placed a bid for their star striker Moussa Dembele.
Lampard is looking to make his team stronger on the attack front and Dembele seems to be a good fit.
“We are not in a dramatic situation. It is difficult in terms of the content of our football but we are still in all the competitions,” Aulas said.
“We are going to try to strengthen. Our first reaction is to look to the youngsters in the academy who are playing and showing more.
“The second is to sign players. The board has decided to do it but not at any price and not at all costs.
“We will only do deals that correspond with what our Sporting Director, board members and manager want.
“They are not pieces of good news that are coming from Spain, but they are pieces of news… Moussa Dembele will not leave because he wants to stay to win something with Lyon.
“There have been offers for him and for other players but none of those that we want to keep will leave in January.”
Olympique Lyonnais has taken note of certain information relayed by the media suggesting that Moussa Dembele could interest other clubs during this transfer window,” it read.
“OL would like to reaffirm its wish, as in the summer of 2019, to keep Moussa Dembele.
“The club has full confidence in Moussa and counts in particular on him to build a successful team for the seasons to come.”
