Alexandre Lacazette is reportedly a target for Arsenal
Arsenal have been linked with Alexandre Lacazette for a number of seasons and reportedly made a failed attempt to sign the striker last summer.
The 25-year-old has since toyed with the idea of leaving Lyon and club advisor Bernard Lacombe admitted earlier this month it was a strong possibility.
And Lacazette has now handed any would-be suitors a major transfer boost by claiming he is ready to depart the French club.
