The France international has been extremely impressive this season, already scoring 20 goals in just 25 appearances in the current campaign and Lyon could be set to receive a £15million offer for their prized asset.

The attacker himself told Yahoo that he may have supported Barcelona as a kid, but is open to playing in the English Premier League.

“Between England and Spain, I don’t have a preference,” he said.

“I dreamt about Barca when I was little, but once you grow up you know you cannot be on just one club.

“I will not be leaving for the sake of it, I have medium and long term aims, after that we will see what is best for me.”

Manchester City were also keen on Lacazette, but after closing in on a £30million move for Wilfried Bony, are unlikely to pursue the 23-year-old.
