Premier League sides interested in Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette.
Prolific Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette has revealed his desire to play football away from Ligue 1, with the Express reporting that this could open the door for Arsenal and Liverpool to enter a bidding war for the £15 million rated attacker who has been possibly the best player in French football during the season so far.
Lacazette is Ligue 1’s top scorer after his form with Lyon ignited, attracting the attention of a host of top European clubs, and Lacazette himself has now poured petrol onto the fire of speculation linking him with a move away from the club by indicating that it is his dream to play in either England or Spain.
Arsenal and Liverpool are both linked with Lacazette, who is expected to cost around £15 million to prise away from Lyon after he penned a new deal last summer, with the report suggesting that the French international’s comments could spark a bidding war between the two Premier League sides.
Blessed with immense pace and explosive finishing abilities, Lacazette’s transformation from a wide player to a natural goalscorer has inevitably brought comparisons to Thierry Henry – an interesting narrative featured should Arsenal press ahead in bringing him to the Emirates Stadium.
