Arsenal and Chelsea target confirms Premier League desire

Lacazette.jpgArsenal and Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have whacked out their notepads to figure out the best possible line-up, after a highly-rated European star revealed his aspirations of landing a Premier League transfer.

The Telegraph quote Lyon sensation Alexandre Lacazette as admitting he wants a move to England, hinting that a transfer could take place this summer.

‘Yes, I am thinking about it and the Premier League is very attractive for a player 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.’

‘So 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 [Jean-Michel Aulas] knows that it is a possibility that I will leave Lyon at the end of the season. I will stay at Lyon in Janaury.’

Metro claim the French international is a target for both London giants, whilst Stoke City and Newcastle are also keen. However, Lacazette wants to join a Champions League outfit.

Our landlord believes Lacazette would be a good addition for either side but claims Arsenal have the better chance, as they’ll have Champions League football next season- whereas he can’t see Chelsea pulling it back.
