Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette has admitted he would not like to refuse the right offer that comes in this summer after scoring a hat-trick for Lyon in their 3-0 win over Nancy.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with the 25-year-old this summer, and have had a £29.3million bid turned down by Arsenal as Arsene Wenger looks to finally reinforce the front line.
The striker underlined his importance to the Ligue 1 outfit by scoring all three goals for Lyon on Sunday, and Lacazette suggested he could leave for the right offer.
“If there are offers that can’t be refused, I’d like to not refuse them,” Lacazette told French TV show Canal Football Club (translation via Express)
“But I’m very comfortable at Lyon. The proof was there today that I was in the right state of mind.
“I scored three goals – I’m pleased. With my team-mates, everything is going well. So for me all is well.”

Arsenal will need to counter their first offer with upwards of £40million to land one of the rare ‘available’ strikers in the market. The indications are clear that Lacazette is atrainable at the right price.
Wenger knows what needs to be done. He just has a little over two weeks to do it.
