Arsenal and Liverpool target hints at possible Premier League switch

Arsenal and Liverpool have been alerted after Alexandre Lacazette hinted that he is hoping to complete a move to the Premier League, Le10Sport reports.

The 24-year-old Lyon star was heavily linked with a switch to England last summer, with Newcastle United also seeing a £25million offer rejected back in January.

He caught the eye of a host of interested parties after managing to register 27 goals in 33 Ligue 1 matches last season.

Lacazette has now revealed that he is still interested in a move to the English top flight, but will remain focussed on performing with his current side in hopes of earning himself a transfer later on.

“A departure ? Yes, I think about the Premier League is very attractive for a player,” he said.

“But I know that to go, I have to play well this season. So I’m very focused and perhaps after that, I will leave.

“I know it is possible to go in the Premier League and Lyon is also aware.”

Apart from the mentioned sides, Chelsea have also been linked with the striker amid speculation that the club is set to undergo a squad overhaul during the upcoming window.

The France international has already featured 35 times in all competitions this term, so far managing to score 14 goals while providing another two assists.
