Premier League clubs Chelsea and Arsenal have been linked with Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette for quite some time now and the striker, in a recent interview, has talked up a possibility of moving to Premier League.
The 24-year-old, who scored 27 goals in 33 appearances last season has already rejected Newcastle’s approach this season.
He revealed that he is open to a move to Premier League at the end of the season, and his claims have boosted Chelsea’s hopes of signing him in the summer.
“Yes, I am thinking about it and the Premier League is very attractive for a player,” Lacazette told The Telegraph when asked about a possible move to Premier League.
“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.
“I know that it is possible that I will move to the Premier League and Lyon are aware of that also. There is no formal agreement that I will go, but the president [Aulas] knows that it’s a possibility that I will leave Lyon at the end of the season.”
