Lacazette admits Premier League move would be “an interesting option”

Date Posted,June 5, 2017

Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has admitted a move to the Premier League would be of interest to him.

The 26-year-old’s future has again come under the microscope after a proposed move to Atletico Madrid was halted when the Spanish side saw their appeal again a transfer ban denied.

That has again alerted the likes of Arsenal , Liverpool and Manchester United, who have all tracked the Frenchman in recent months.

Lacazette netted 37 times for OL during the 2016-17 season and he appears to be keeping his options open.

The France international was asked about the possibility of moving to the Premier League in a Facebook Live interview with Eurosport, saying: “That could be an interesting option, it is a great league with interesting teams.

“For the moment, those are only rumours.

“I will wait until the end of the international stint with France before taking my decision.”

He was also asked about rumours linking him to Borussia Dortmund.

“That could be interesting, Dortmund are a great club,” he continued.

Lacazette also addressed the Atletico situation after Diego Simeone’s men were banned from registering new players until January.

“Like everyone else, I heard the news. This was always going to be a possibility, it was 50-50. The decision has not perturbed me, life goes on.”

The in-demand striker also refused to rule out a summer move to Atletico with a six-month loan move back to Lyon.

It is possible, it is a scenario that should not be excluded,” he claimed. “A loan to Lyon until the winter window? I have not looked at that much because the President is saying that that is not possible. We will have to prepare ourselves for all eventualities, but that is not the way I want it to go.”
