Arsenal 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.
‘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.
Arsenal fans, is Lacazette a striker you want? Can Chelsea land this deal? Let us know in the comments below!
