Alexandre Lacazette: Fancies summer switch to England

Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has put his Premier League suitors on red alert by admitting “he is thinking about a move to England this summer”.

The France forward was reportedly the subject of a failed bid from Newcastle in the January transfer window, and has also attracted admiring glances from the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.

The player has previously hinted he wanted to stay at Lyon this season in a bid to secure his place in the France squad for the 2016 European Championships, but is well aware the time to leave the Stade Gerland could come around soon.

“A departure? Yes, I think about the Premier League is very attractive for a player,” he told French outlet Le 10 Sport. “But I know that to go, I have to play well this season. So I’m very focused and perhaps after that, I will leave.

“I know it is possible to go in the Premier League and Lyon is also aware.”

The 24-year-old striker has scored 15 goals for Les Gones this season.
