The OL forward has indicated that he would love his dazzling teammate to join him in the French national team.

Alex Lacazette and Nabil Fekir, along with Yoann Gourcuff, were in sublime form as Olympique Lyonnais smashed  Montpellier 5-1 to return to the top of the Ligue 1 table.

The interplay between the three was superb, with Gourcuff and Fekir in particular demonstrating a superb mutual understanding.

However, while Lacazette and Gourcuff are already France internationals, Fekir’s future remains in the balance with Algeria and Les Bleus both indicating a desire for his services.

Speaking live on Canal+ after the demolition of MHSC, Lacazette-who scored twice-entertained the suggestion of the Lyon trio starring for the national side.

“Fekir, Gourcuff and me with Les Bleus? That’s not for me to decide. We create things together. It’s up to us to work.”

To date, Lacazette has five caps for France, having made his debut for Didier Deschamps’ side in June 2013.
