Arsenal are the only Premier League club interested in Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, according to Kaveh Solhekol.

The Sky Sports News HQ journalist has taken to Twitter to claim that the Gunners are the only English club in the running for the £50m-rated striker.

Lacazette has regularly been linked with a move to sign the France international over the past couple of summer transfer windows.

According to Solhekol, Arsenal could explore the possibility of signing the Lyon star at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Solhekol wrote: “Strange if true that Arsenal only English club who will try to sign £50m Alexandre Lacazette this summer. Best striker I’ve seen this season.”

Lacazette has scored 24 times in 26 games in Ligue 1 in the current campaign.

The France forward has netted 87 times in 130 games in the 2016-17 season.

Solhekol took to Twitter later on Tuesday afternoon to reveal the other European clubs interested in the Arsenal target.

Solhekol said: “France Foootball magazine: Clubs interested in Alexandre Lacazette are Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan & Borussia Dortmund.”
