Alexandre Lacazette has given Arsenal green signal to sign him after admitting he doesn’t want to refuse offers away from Lyon this summer.

The 25-year-old forward, who scored a hat-trick against Nancy on Sunday, has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates in recent weeks as Arsene Wenger scours the market for attacking reinforcements.

Lyon announced last month that they had rejected a £29million bid from the Gunners for Lacazette but it appears the France international would accept a transfer to north London if a higher offer comes in for his services.

“If offers come in that one cannot refuse, I don’t want to refuse them. If not, I am happy at Lyon,” Lacazette told CANAL+ following Lyon’s 3-0 victory over Nancy.

Get French Football suggests the reporter then asked Lacazette if he had received any offers, to which he responded with a smile: “Ask the president.”

Lacazette has been inconsistent at times for Lyon, but an explosive end to the season has seen him confirm his status as a top striker. He scored 11 in his last ten league matches in the previous campaign, including an impressive hat-trick against AS Monaco.

He missed out on the France Euro 2016 squad to many people’s surprise, with Didier Deschamps preferring to rely on two target men in Olivier Giroud and Andre-Pierre Gignac. Lacazette can feel unlucky as he was in great form, and is a lot more tactically flexible than people give him credit for.

He can play on the wing or as a number nine, while his aggression and power allow him to hold up the ball, and play with his back for a goal. He would have added an extra dimension to the squad.

His finishing is very good, as he always seems to know whether to go for power or placement. He is never rushed in the penalty box, and appears to be able to create an extra second to make a decision, rarely wasting clear cut chances.

In terms of his overall play, Lacazette is good at retaining the ball, and has quick feet, which enables him to skip through challenges. He sometimes drops deeper and has the ability to play nice through balls to midfielders running into the box. He is a complete forward, capable of playing a number of roles and would provide another dimension to the Arsenal attack.
