The France international is expected to be on the move this summer after starring in his homeland, but he will only be sold if the terms are right
Lyon are prepared to let Alexandre Lacazette join “the club of his heart” for the right price, with the Arsenal and Liverpool-linked striker attracting interest once again.
The France international has long been linked with a big-money transfer on the back of his prolific efforts in his homeland.
The 25-year-old has been in sparking form again this season, netting 35 times in 44 appearances.
He has broken the 20-goal barrier in four successive campaigns and Lyon acknowledge that the time has come to let Lacazette move on if their demands are met.
Owner Jean-Michel Aulas told reporters: “Alex had a good option with a club that is in his heart.
“If the club of his heart is able to match our demands then things will go well. Otherwise, it will depend on our other business.”
West Ham were in the market for Lacazette in 2016, but saw a reported £43 million bid turned down.
That price tag is likely to have increased as the goals have continued to flow, while the list of clubs keeping a close eye on the situation will continue to grow ahead of the summer window.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Lacazette for a number of years, and will be looking to add on the back of their struggles this season, while Liverpool may be interested as they seek to add depth to a squad that will have European fixtures to contend with in 2017-18.
Atletico Madrid have been mooted as another potential landing spot, with the La Liga giants waiting to discover whether Antoine Griezmann will leave them with an attacking void to fill.
