Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette has admitted that it is “flattering” to be linked with Barcelona.
The Spanish champions are said to be considering a summer swoop for the 27-year-old, who has scored 19 times and contributed 13 assists for the Gunners this season.
When questioned on the reported interest by Telefoot, Lacazette said that it was “flattering” to be mentioned in the same breath as the Catalan giants.
The France international joined Arsenal from Lyon in 2017, and has found the back of the net on 36 occasions in 87 appearances for the English club in all competitions.
Barca are said to be in the market for a new striker who will ultimately take Luis Suarez‘s spot in the team.
