"I think that the right moment has arrived", he told Canal Football Club.
However, it seems the French worldwide is already itching for a move as he's been quoted as telling reporters that he wants to progress his career by leaving Lyon at the end of the season.
"I'm going to keep working with the hope that good opportunities will come along this summer".
Lacazette has scored 21 times in all competitions so far this season and only Edinson Cavani has bagged more in Ligue 1 this season. They have aliens up front.
"If that happens, great, but I am not here to say that I will take a place from Luis Suarez".
"But that ended because it was not consistent with what I wanted, because what I wanted is to play", he added.
Lyon's French forward Alexandre Lacazette (L) celebrates after scoring a goal during the French L1 football match Olympique Lyonnais (OL) vs Marseille (OM) on January 22, 2017, at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais stadium in Decines-Charpieu, central-eastern France. The French side confirmed that they had rejected a bid of £30m from the Gunners, who went on to sign Lucas Perez instead.
The player's current deal runs out in 2019 with the player valued at around €40m, but the same report suggests the club are looking to extend his contract and insert a release clause of up to €70m.
Lacazette has become a proven goal scorer in France and although the Premier League is a lot more demanding, Arsenal's midfield maestros should be able to provide him with enough chances to consistently get more than 20 goals a season.
