Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has indicated that he wants to join Atletico Madrid this Summer.
The France international has been regularly linked with a move to Liverpool, as well as Arsenal, over the past eighteen months.
But it looks like he has decided to snub Premier League interest in order to make a move to Spain – but Atletico won’t be able to sign him this Summer unless they overturn a transfer ban in force until January.
Lacazette has still spoken about his admiration for the club where his compatriot Antoine Griezmann is a star turn.
“I have already done a lot for the club, I am keen to see how things are elsewhere, that is true.” he told the Lyon club television channel.
“I want to wait until the end of the season to discuss things with my agent and make the right choice for my future.
“You need to have some proposals on the table in order to make a choice, so I prefer to wait until the end of the season.
“Atletico Madrid are one of the clubs that have been linked in the press.
“They have a great coach, nice fans, a project and they obviously have Antoine Griezmann.”
“But I do not want to leave at all costs.” he finished.
It looks like Jurgen Klopp will have to look elsewhere for a new striker this Summer.
