Lacazette is one of Arsenal's top targets this summer as Arsene Wenger looks to strengthen his squad ahead of a season in the Europa League.

At the end of the French league season, the 26-year-old striker made clear he wanted to leave Lyon and join a big club in the Champions League.

A move to Atletico Madrid collapsed when their transfer ban was upheld by FIFA and it meant Arsenal then became favourites to sign him.

But Aulas has always been bullish about the prospect of Lacazette staying at Lyon.
