Alexandre Lacazette: Will consider Premier League move in summer

Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has ruled out the prospect of moving to the Premier League in the January window – but admits he is open to a summer switch to England.

The France striker, who has been linked with moves to Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle, was the subject of a failed bid from the Magpies earlier this month, with the player eager to stay with Lyon and cement his place in the France squad for Euro 2016.

But Lacazette admits the Premier League does have plenty of appeal and says he will consider a move at the end of the season.

“Yes, I am thinking about it and the Premier League is very attractive for a player,” Lacazette told The Telegraph.

“But I know that to go there I have to do well this season. So I am very concentrated on doing well and maybe, after that, I will go there.

“There is no formal agreement that I will go but the president [Jean-Michel Aulas] knows that it’s a possibility that I will leave Lyon at the end of the season.”
