Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette is puzzled after his side failed to complete the deal for West Ham United’s Saïd Benrahma on deadline day.

The forward has revealed that he and his teammates were expecting the 28-year-old to join them in training and his quotes are relayed L’Equipe.

On Thursday, the West Ham player had travelled to France to seal a move to the Ligue 1 side but the deal didn’t go through before the window closed.

Lyon, through their official website, have pinned the blame on David Moyes’ side, for not uploading the necessary documents related to the transfer on the FIFA platform. A report earlier today explained that the French club are considering an appeal to FIFA over the failed deal.

Meanwhile, Lacazette didn’t hesitate to share his feelings over Lyon’s failure to secure the Algeria international’s services.

“There is a lot of surprise because when we went to bed last night, we were expecting him at training this morning, and ultimately he’s not there so there is really a lack of understanding in the group,” he said.

The former Brentford man has lost prominence under Moyes’ orders this season. He’s made 15 appearances [only five starts] in the Premier League, failing to score a goal and registering one assist in the process.

A disappointed Benrahma will return to West Ham, where he has a contract until 2026, unless FIFA allow the transfer to take place.
