Alexandre Lacazette once again insists that he is happy to remain at Lyon beyond the end of the current transfer window.

Alexandre Lacazette has insisted that there is little chance of him leaving Lyon in the current transfer window.

The 23-year-old forward has been repeatedly linked with a move to Newcastle United this summer, but he is certain that the club will not be persuaded to sell him to any interested parties in the near future.

"Why do I want to stay? Because I am happy at Lyon," Lacazette told Canal+. "Lyon is a nice club, a nice city and a nice project.

"There have been propositions from everywhere, but after a lot of thinking I decided it was better to stay.

"We will see at the end of the season if I was right, but I think I have made the right decision."

Liverpool were also rumoured to be considering making an approach for Lacazette.
