Alexandre Lacazette has revealed that France international striker Antoine Griezmann has been trying to get him to sign for Atletico Madrid “for a while”.

Speaking after scoring twice in a 2-2 draw with Nice, Lacazette admitted his future lies away from Parc OL.

“I’ve decided to leave Lyon for a while, but I’ve not gone yet. I’ve thought about it for a while,” Lacazette said.

“It’s difficult to say no to a club like Atletico if they ask you. But there’s not only Atletico.

“Antoine has been trying to get me to move there for a while.”

Even if the Lyon striker dropped only this hint about his future, it seems that Griezmann may get his wish, with OL president Jean-Michel Aulas confirming on Saturday that an agreement has been reached with Atleti and a deal will be done if the Spanish side are able to successfully appeal their transfer ban.
