Lyon chief Jean-Michel Aulas has admitted that Alexandre Lacazette could be on the move this summer amid interest from Arsenal and Atletico Madrid.

The France international has been one of the most consistent strikers in the French Ligue 1, and his career-best tally of 35 goals this season has assured his club a place in the Europa League.

Speaking at a news conference, via ESPN, Aulas confirmed the club's intention to sell Lacazette, should his suitors match their valuation.

"If the club of Alex's heart is capable of matching our demands like Barcelona did with Samuel Umtiti last year, then things will go well," he said.

Lacazette has been angling for a move to the Emirates for a while, but it is understood that the lack of Champions League could hinder their chances of signing him this summer.

Owing to this, Atletico Madrid appear favourites to sign the Les Bleus striker as they seek to find a potential replacement for Antoine Griezmann, who is seemingly heading to Manchester United this summer.
