Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.
Long term Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette has revealed he is prepared to make the switch to the Premier league, according to the Mirror.
Lacazette has been linked with a move to the Premier league with Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle credited with an interest to sign the 24 year old star.
After spending five years at Olympic Lyonnaise, Lacazette now thinks it is time to make the step to the Premier league.
“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,” he told the Telegraph.
“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’s a possibility that I will leave Lyon at the end of the season.”
However, he also stated the kind of team he’d love to move to which makes Arsenal an attractive option for him, he said:
“They should play Champions League and play good football, passing the ball and not just hitting it from box to box. Not kick and rush. It would not work for me.”
Lacazette scored 27 league goals in 33 appearances for Lyon last season and already has 7 to his name this term.
Arsenal are reportedly stepping up their search for a striker next summer and Lacazette could be an attractive option.
