Arsenal and West Ham United are two Premier League sides reported to be very much interested in signing him, but judging by what he told reporters ahead of Lyon’s game at Ajax, none of the two London clubs have what it takes to sign him this summer.
It will have to be in the Champions League and play good football
Alexandre Lacazette said, talking about the team that could make him leave Lyon.
They should like passing the ball, not just hitting it from box to box. Not kick and rush. That would not work for me
the French striker added. Lyon are sitting fourth in the table, with zero chances to finish in the top three. Winning the Europa League is their only chance to play Champions League football next season.
West Ham United are definitely not playing in the Champions League next year, and Arsenal are by no means favourites to finish in the top four in the Premier League, even though mathematically it’s still possible to leave two of Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United behind them.
Lacazette has scored 24 goals this season, and one thing is for sure, finding a Champions League team to sign him won’t be an issue, having impressed with Lyon.
