Olympique Lyonnais striker Alexandre Lacazette has told Canal +  and as quoted by Sky Sports that he would be willing to seek pastures new, if an offer arrived that he could not refuse.

The French striker opened his account for the new season in style over the weekend, bagging a hat-trick in Lyon's 3-0 win at AS Nancy Lorraine.

The forward has been linked with a move to Arsenal, with the Mirror recently claiming that the French club are demanding as much as £40 million for the much coveted front man.

But Lacazette himself, speaking after his side's victory over Nancy, did say he would be open to offers, but that he is comfortable where he is.

"If there are offers that can't be refused, I'd like to not refuse them.

"But I'm very comfortable at Lyon. The proof was there today that I was in the right state of mind," he explained.

"I scored three goals - I'm pleased. With my teammates, everything is going well. So for me all is well."

Pressure is already beginning to mount on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, after his side shipped four goals in their season opener against Liverpool on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp's side looked a class apart at times going forward, picking off the Gunners' visibly vulnerable back line with some terrific goals.
