Olympique Lyonnais (OL) prepares for the upcoming season with a solid attacking lineup. Alexandre Lacazette’s impressive return to Ligue 1 has solidified his position as the team’s attacking leader. Alongside him, young talents Amin Sarr and Bradley Barcola have shown promise, providing hope for the club’s future.
Additionally, Tino Kadewere has returned from his loan spell and aims to make an impact. Let’s explore the potential attacking options for OL next season.
Alexandre Lacazette: Leading the Line
Alexandre Lacazette’s return to Ligue 1 has been a resounding success, finishing as the second-top scorer in the league with 27 goals. With his exceptional performances, Lacazette is expected to be the attacking powerhouse for OL once again. His experience and goal-scoring ability make him a vital asset to the team.
Amin Sarr, who arrived in the winter from SC Heerenveen, has already showcased his talent under the guidance of Laurent Blanc.
Despite his limited game time (13 Ligue 1 matches), Sarr’s progress has been noteworthy. As he continues to develop, a full season could see him grow in strength and contribute more significantly to the team’s attack.
Alongside Sarr, Bradley Barcola has formed a fruitful partnership with Lacazette, providing five goals and eight assists. The performances of this young prodigy (20 years old) indicate a promising future for OL.
Tino Kadewere’s Return to Olympique Lyonnais
Tino Kadewere has returned to OL after his loan spell at Mallorca. Although his performances in Spain were inconsistent (one goal in 15 La Liga games), the Zimbabwean international (21 caps, 3 goals) is eager to revive his career.

Joining the team’s preseason training camp, Kadewere has an opportunity to impress coach Laurent Blanc and regain his form. As OL seeks to strengthen its attacking options, Kadewere’s return adds depth to the squad.
Laurent Blanc manages multiple attacking options, including Karl-Toko Ekambi and Jeff Reine-Adélaïde, who may have been deemed undesirable in the past season. As the team prepares for the upcoming campaign, Blanc must make strategic decisions to optimize the attacking force while maintaining harmony within the squad.
Olympique Lyonnais looks forward to a promising attacking lineup for the upcoming season. With Alexandre Lacazette leading the line and promising talents like Amin Sarr and Bradley Barcola emerging, OL has a strong foundation.
The return of Tino Kadewere adds further depth and competition for places. Coach Laurent Blanc faces the challenge of managing his attacking options effectively to ensure a successful and dynamic attacking force for OL in the forthcoming season.
