Arsenal transfers: Alexandre Lacazette responds to Lyon exit talk

Alexandre Lacazette says that he has no plans to quit Lyon this summer amid links to Arsenal and Liverpool

Alexandre Lacazette has moved to end the speculation surrounding his future by declaring his intention to stay at Lyon beyond the summer.

The striker has been heavily linked with a move away from the French club in recent days, with both Arsenal and Liverpool reported to be keen on luring the forward to the Premier League.

The striker, who scored 27 goals in 33 Ligue 1 appearances last season, has also been touted as a possible target for Manchester United as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his squad.

However, it now appears that the 24-year-old is planning to stay at the Ligue 1 outfit and ignore the admiring glances from England, if his latest comments are anything to go by.

Lacazette is quoted as saying by Goal: “I want to show those who think that I have my head elsewhere that I’m still here.

“I have already said that I want to continue with Lyon.

“I have shown that I’m fully committed. It’s football that interests me, not money. I hope to have a strong season.”

France international Lacazette, who is believed to be valued at around £27m, scored 31 goals in 33 games last season and also notched up six assists for the French outfit.
