Chelsea, United, Liverpool target claims it would be difficult to reject Madrid or Barcelona
Lyon sensation Alexandre Lacazette has claimed that it would be difficult to say no to either of the Spanish giants Real Madrid or Barcelona.
The Frenchman topped the Ligue 1 goalscoring charts with 27 goals to his name, propelling Les Gones to a second place finish, and also a Champions League berth.
The 24-year-old is coveted by host of European clubs, with Liverpool a long term admirers of the Lyon youth product. The Merseyside club were rumored to be interested in bringing Lacazette to Anfield in January, but Lyon managed to keep hold onto their prized asset.

But despite his desire to play for the Spanish heavyweights, Lacazette has insisted that he hasn’t made a decision over his future.
Talking to Le Parisien, he said, “I’ve not made my decision”
“I’m going to go on holiday and leave my agent to discuss it and occupy himself with that. I’m not going to be worried by it.
“As soon as I’ve decided, I want it to be carried out quickly.
“It’s tough to say no to Barcelona and Real Madrid. But today, it’s not a 50-50 case of whether I stay or go, I’m not thinking about it.
“I’ll go to the France team and think. I can stay at Lyon and have a bad season as much as I can go and have an exceptional season.
“It all depends on my destination. If I go to a club with six centre-forwards, it’s not the same as if I’m first choice.”
