Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has insisted that he wants to stay at the Ligue 1 outfit this summer. 

As reported by the London Evening Standard, the talented striker, who is still only 24-years-old, has insisted that he's fully committed to the club, as he's only interested in playing football. 

Lacazette, of course, has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent time, with the trio of Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all having been credited with interest in his signature.

In fact, he was recently valued at a massive €60 million by his coach Hubert Fournie, so it's far from certain as to whether any of England's big-boys will swoop for his services anytime soon.

It appears, though, that he's happy to stay on in France, as he told reporters: "I want to show those who think that I have my head elsewhere that I'm still here.


"I have already said that I want to continue with Lyon.

"I have shown that I'm fully committed. It's football that interests me, not money. I hope to have a strong season."

A fine signing

There's no doubt about it, the striker's comments should come as a blow to the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Co. 

Ultimately, after finding the back of the net on 27 occasions in Ligue 1 last season, the striker would have been a fine signing for anyone in this window.

Strong and quick, with an eye for goal, the Lyon man may well have taken the Premier League by storm, but it appears that we will have to wait before seeing him star on English soil.
