Man Utd transfer update: £50m prolific striker drops huge transfer hint
LYON striker Alexandre Lacazette admits he would be interested in a move to the Premier League.
Lacazette has attracted a host of interest heading into the summer transfer window after confirming he wants to leave Lyon.
It’s widely believed that both Liverpool and Manchester United want the £50m-rated France international, who bagged 37 goals this season.
Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are also said to be keen on the 26-year-old – and Lacazette admits he would be tempted by moves to either England or Germany.
“[The Premier League] can be an interesting option, it is a beautiful championship with teams that are interesting,” Lacazette told Eurosport (via Metro).
“For now, these are only rumours. [Moving to the Bundesliga] would be interesting, Dortmund is a great club.”
Liverpool are expected to meet his representatives next week as manager Jurgen Klopp continues his search for a big-name striker.
While United boss Jose Mourinho is said to have turned his attention to Lacazette after giving up his pursuit of Atletico Madrid hitman Antoine Griezmann.
Lacazette had initially set his sights on a move to Atletico until their transfer ban until January for signing under age-players was upheld.
But when asked if he could sign for Atletico and be loaned back to Lyon, Lacazette added: “It is possible. This is a case that can not be ruled out.
“I did not about it think too much because the president [Jean-Michel Aulas] said it was not possible.
“We must prepare for all the contingencies but that is not the plan I would prefer.”
