Cape Town - Striker Alexandre Lacazette says he is fully focused on life with Arsenal for now, after being linked with a move to Barcelona in the off-season.

The France international has had another impressive season with the Gunners when firing home 19 goals in all competitions, form which has not gone unnoticed at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona are looking to make changes following another poor showing in the Champions League this season, and Lacazette is reported to be on their wanted list.

When quizzed by the media in his homeland, Lacazette revealed he was flattered by the link, but is fully focused on Arsenal and the Europa League final against Chelsea.

"That's what the club saw in him as the coach to help the team go to the next step and he did because we go to the final in his first season," Lacazette said of boss Unai Emery.

"I hope it is going to be a great final for us and we will prepare for it. It is really important. The Champions League is a big competition.

"Last season, we failed at the semi-finals and this season we wanted to be better."
