The Lyon forward, who had an excellent return of 27 goals in 32 games last season, hasn’t attempted to dismiss speculations with his comments according to the Telegraph.

I have not made my decision. I will go on holiday, leave my agent to discuss things, for him to look after all that

I am not worried. As soon as I have decided, I want it all to happen quickly. Everything depends on the destination. It would have to be for a Champions League club.”

His Manager, Fournier, not wanting to confirm or dismiss the speculations said.

He is still under contract and the club is the decision maker. At no time have I felt a request to leave from him

Things can still change. It is early July. The sooner it is resolved, the better it will be for everyone.” According to the Telegraph.

Lacazette has also been heavily linked to Liverpool, Manchester United and PSG. But it seems Wenger however, is a step ahead of the others on this deal.
