Lacazette is Ligue 1’s top scorer this season after scoring 26 goals in just 28 appearances so far, and has been linked with a move to England since last season. Those reports have resurfaced with the Express claiming last month that the Gunners were set to battle Liverpool for his signature in the summer.

But it according to talkSPORT it appears Champions League quarter-finalists Paris Saint Germain are keen to bolster their attacking options and want to ensure the player remains in France, but may have to sell one of Edinson Cavani or Ezequiel Lavezzi in order to meet Financial Fair Play rules.

The 23-year-old scored his first international goal against Denmark on Sunday and will be hoping to continue his fantastic goal-scoring exploits as the season draws to a close with Lyon just a point off top spot.
