Arsenal have also been credited with an interest in the 23-year-old, while the Gunners’ north London rivals Tottenham are said to be among the other clubs keeping tabs on the forward.

Now, the striker will have turned heads in the Premier League with his latest comments about his future, as he refused to rule out the possibility of leaving Lyon at the end of the season.

“For now, I’m at Lyon and contracted, but you never know what may happen this summer,” Lacazette is quoted as saying by Metro.

“There will be a discussion between the [Lyon] president and myself – we will see if I continue at Lyon or not.”

Lacazette has been in impressive form for Lyon this season and has scored 23 goals in 26 games for the Ligue 1 side. He has also notched up five assists in the French top flight.
