Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette has given hope to the Gunners by revealing during a recent interview with ESPN that the hasn’t made his mind up about his future.
The Frenchman was said to be on the verge of joining Atletico Madrid this summer, pending the Spanish side’s appeal to lift a transfer ban, but the 26 year old has stated he may yet even stay at Lyon:
“It’s not sure that I leave the club where I came through the youth academy. There’s nothing signed, nothing official. Yes, I can leave, it doesn’t mean I’ll leave. I’m at a crossroads. I’m not ruling out any option. I’m good in Lyon, but I could go elsewhere.”
The striker is believed to be top of Arsene Wenger’s summer transfer wishlist, according to a report in the Evening Standard, and with these latest comments it seems he has reopened the door to making a switch to the Emirates.
Arsenal tried to sign the France international last summer with Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas confirming the club’s interest in July last year. Lacazette’s signing will be a prize scalp for any team having scored 37 goals in 45 games in all competitions this season for the French club.
