Lyon manager Hubert Fournier has confirmed that star striker Alexandre Lacazette wants to stay with the club ahead of the new season, reports Sky Sports.

The forward, who enjoyed a wonderful 2014/15 campaign in Ligue 1, has been heavily linked with a move away from the club throughout the course of the summer. 

In fact, the English trio of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all been credited with interest in the player's services, however it appears that he won't be heading to English soil anytime soon.

Fournier claims it's natural that a number of top teams are interested in the 24-year-old, but he will remain at the club for the foreseeable future.

And when asked where he expects the forward to be playing this season, Fournier said: "Olympique Lyonnais.


"I haven't got much to say. He has said he wants to stay with us.

"Of course some clubs are going to be attracted to the sort of player he is but he is under contract at Lyon and with all of the different competitions we have this season with the Champions League and the domestic French cups, we obviously want to keep him at the club."

United & Arsenal in need 

These comments may well come as a blow to both Manchester United and Arsenal, who are both in need of a new striker. The Red Devils, after losing the duo of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao, are clearly in need of another top forward to challenge captain Wayne Rooney in the front-line.

Arsenal, despite having the likes of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Co. could do with adding a top name to their ranks before the start of the new campaign, while Liverpool fans may well be content with their options after landing Christian Benteke from Aston Villa.
