Lacazette has scored 14 goals in 29 appearances for Lyon in Ligue 1 this season and has been linked with several Premier League clubs.

Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool and Newcastle are all reported to have shown an interest in the 22-year-old, who has a further two years to run on his contract at Stade Gerland.

Juventus, who Lyon face in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday, are also rumoured to be keen and the France international is prepared to take on a fresh challenge in the future.

“Would I like to play for Juventus? I’d be a liar if I said no,” Lacazette told Tuttosport.

“I’m tempted to try and experience abroad at a big club. And Juventus are one of the greatest clubs in Europe.

“My contract with Lyon expires in 2016, so we must see what the president [Jean-Michel] Aulas will say and decide.

“Are Arsenal and Liverpool interested in me? I repeat that an experience in another major championship fascinates me. But for now I just think of doing well for Lyon, the club where I have grown up.”

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
