Arsenal and Liverpool striker target Alexandre Lacazette has opened the door for a move to England after admitting that he wants to continue his career outside of France.

The Lyon striker, has been linked with the Premier League sides since the summer, and has been in red hot form this season for the Ligue 1 club. He has scored an impressive 17 goals and provided five assists in the 19 league games he has played this season.

The Merseyside club have struggled to find the back of the net this season and summer arrivals Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have failed to live up to their potential. This has prompted Brendan Rodgers to delve into the market for a striker during the ongoing January transfer window.

Lacazette has been in fine form this season and his 17 league goals make him the second top scorer in Europe's top five leagues only behind Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

The striker has now admitted that he would love to play in England or Spain. He also revealed that playing for Barcelona would be a dream come true.

"Between England and Spain, I don't have a preference," Lacazette said, as quoted by the Express.

"I dreamt about Barca when I was little, but once you grow up you know you cannot be on just one club."

"I will not be leaving for the sake of it, I have medium and long term aims, after that we will see what is best for me," the Lyon striker explained.

The striker also spoke about remaining in France to play with reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain, but believes a move abroad will be better suited for him than staying in his homeland.

"PSG? We will see, it is hard the answer that now."

"To play with (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic and Lucas (Moura), I cannot say that I cannot see myself in this attack but it would more likely be a departure abroad. Afterwards, you never know what might happen," Lacazette concluded.
