A host of English clubs are looking to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette this summer, according to French journalist Julien Laurens.
As reported in the ?Express, Laurens stated: ?
All three clubs are rumoured to be keen on reinforcing their forward line. Tottenham have long been over reliant on Harry Kane’s goal scoring exploits. Furthermore, neither Liverpool nor Arsenal possess a centre forward in the mould of Kane, Costa, Aguero or Ibrahimovic.
Lacazette scored on Sunday in Lyon’s 5-0 hammering of relegation threatened Metz, and
However, it seems that Lacazette may well finally leave the French side this summer with rumours he has announced his intention to depart this summer to club president Jean-Michel Aulas.
Despite Lacazette’s impressive goal scoring exploits Lyon are placed 4th in Ligue 1, 16 points adrift of league leaders Monaco, and a full 13 points outside of the Champions League qualifying places.
Atletico Madrid have also been rumoured to be looking at the Frenchman as a replacement for fellow countryman Antoine Griezmann should he depart the Vicente Claderon this summer.
Griezmann has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.
