Lyon star hints at Arsenal & Liverpool interest

Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette has opened the door to a move to the Premier League by suggesting that interest from Liverpool and Arsenal is genuine.

The 22-year-old ace has been in excellent form this term for the Ligue 1 giants, netting 20 goals in all competitions despite his side’s below par campaign.

His displays have caught the eyes of some of Europe’s top club teams, with Arsenal and Liverpool having both been credited with an interest in the versatile attacker.

The Reds are thought to be particularly keen as Brendan Rodgers plots to further bolster his front line, while Arsene Wenger’s Gunners are long-term admirers and known to have good contacts across the Channel.

Lacazette has previously suggested that he would be open to a big move, and has now added further fuel to the fire by hinting the English duo are looking at him:

“I’m tempted to try and experience abroad at a big club.” He is quoted by The Express.

“Are Arsenal and Liverpool interested in me? I repeat that an experience in another major championship fascinates me. But for now I just think of doing well for Lyon, the club where I have grown up.

“My contract expires in 2016, so we must see what the president [Jean-Michel] Aulas will say and decide.”
