Alexandre Lacazette admits he needs a “change of scenery” in the summer as he opens up the door to a possible exit from Ligue 1 side Lyon.

The Frenchman is a reported long-term target for Arsenal and has been linked with a pricey move away from France for some time.

Lacazette, 25, has bagged 18 goals in 18 Ligue 1 appearances this campaign, while he has also scored over 20 league goals in the previous two seasons.

“I think that the right moment has arrived to leave,” Lacazette told Canal+.

“I think that this summer 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.

“I will continue to work, in the hope that good opportunities will come this summer.”

With former team-mate Samuel Umtiti having already joined Barcelona last summer, the France international admits it would be “a dream” to move to the Camp Nou.

“Barcelona to join Umtiti? It is a very big club,” Lacazette added.

“They have extraterrestrials up front. It would be a dream.

“If that happens, great, but I am not here to say that I will take a place from Luis Suarez. But I would like to play for them one day.”
