Lacazette: I’ll only leave for CL

Lacazette, 23,??has attracted interest from a number of Europe’s top clubs after scoring 27 goals for Ligue 1 runners-up Lyon and being named as France’s player of the season.

Liverpool and Arsenal are two of the teams to be linked with his signature, but a move to Anfield appears to be out of the question after Lacazette told Le Parisien he wants to play in the Champions League.

“Everything depends on the destination. It would have to be for a Champions League club. Barcelona and Real Madrid – you don’t reject them,??? Lacazette??said.

“I could stay at Lyon next season and have a terrible season, I could leave and have an incredible season.

“But today, between leaving and staying, it is not 50-50 – it is zero. I am not thinking about it. I am going to enjoy the national team and I will think about it after.”

Lacazette, who is in the France squad for upcoming friendlies against Belgium and Albania, says he intends to relax this summer and let his agent deal with his future.

???I will go on holiday, let my agent talk and take care of all that. I won???t be disturbed. It won???t worry me at all,??? he said.

???Once I have decided, I want everything to go quickly???If I go to a club with six centre-forwards, it’s not the same as if I’m first choice.”
