Lacazette wants Premier League move

Olympique Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has revealed that he is open to the possibility of a move to the Premier League during the off-season.

The France international was linked with a move to the English top-flight following his remarkable 2014/15 season when he netted 31 goals in all competitions.

The 24-year-old ultimately penned a new deal at Lyon but has now admitted he could leave for England ahead of next season.

“Yes, I am thinking about it and the Premier League is very attractive for a player,” Lacazette told the Telegraph.

“But I know that to go there I have to do well this season. So I am very concentrated on doing well and maybe, after that, I will go there.

“So I know that it is possible that I will move to the Premier League and Lyon are aware of that also.

“There is no formal agreement that I will go but the president [Jean-Michel Aulas] knows that it’s a possibility that I will leave Lyon at the end of the season.”
