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.”

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
