Alexandre Lacazette has put Premier League clubs on red alert after admitting he wants to leave Lyon in the summer.

Lacazette, who only recently signed a new four-year deal at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, has attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe.

Arsenal saw a bid in the region of £30m rejected in the summer before the Lyon president claimed in August that they had snubbed a £42.7m offer from West Ham.

The French club are thought to value Lacazette at £40m and could be open to an offers if clubs are willing to meet this valuation.

In January Lacazette told the Daily Telegraph that the Premier League is "very attractive" and his latest comments suggest a move could be on the cards.

"I think it's come, the right moment," he told Canal+.

"I think that this summer will be the time where I will need a change of scenery and discover something else, still with the idea of advancing and progressing in terms of football and as a person.
