Arsenal and Liverpool have been offered hope in their alleged pursuit of Alexandre Lacazette after the Lyon striker admitted he is tempted by the prospect of a move abroad.
Sky Sports reports how the 22-year-old could be the subject of intense transfer speculation this summer, with several top European clubs having been credited with an interest in his signature.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be keen to lure Lacazette to the Emirates Stadium, while Brendan Rodgers has also been mooted as an admirer of the prolific marksman, who has netted 14 goals in 29 Ligue 1 appearances in 2013/14.
Lacazette's arrival at Anfield would further enhance an already fearsome forward line at Liverpool, which currently boasts Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, while in north London the France international would provide cover for compatriot Olivier Giroud at Arsenal.
However, both Premier League suitors face further competition for the player's signature from Juventus, who have been mentioned specifically as a potential destination that Lacazette is open to heading.
"Would I like to play for Juventus? I'd be a liar if I said no," he told Tuttosport. "I'm tempted to try and experience abroad at a big club. And Juventus are one of the greatest clubs in Europe.
"My contract with Lyon expires in 2016, so we must see what the president [Jean-Michel] Aulas will say and decide."
Regarding speculation linking him with a potential move to England, Lacazette added: "Are Arsenal and Liverpool interested in me? I repeat that an experience in another major championship fascinates me.
"But for now I just think of doing well for Lyon, the club where I have grown up."
