Liverpool reportedly meet €10m Arsenal striking target's agent

Alexandre Lacazette

L’Equipe has stated today that the Reds have started negotiations over a summer move for Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette.

Despite the presence of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge in the Liverpool attack, a number of potential attacking reinforcements have been linked with a switch to Anfield this summer.

One of the most promising is Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette, who has been starring in Ligue 1 this season.

L’Equipe have today suggested that the Merseysiders have started negotiations with the gifted forward’s agent with view to a €10 million summer move.

Lacazette has scored 14 goals in 30 Ligue 1 appearances this term and is also said to have caught the eye of Arsenal, who are also looking to sign a centre forward this summer.

The player has recently stated that he would be interested in a move to one of the major European leagues, but that the decision is out of his hands.

Lyon are believed to be reluctant sellers of Lacazette and fellow Premier League-admired star Clement Grenier, but surely could be forced into a corner with a consider offer this summer.

Liverpool will play in the Champions League next season and as such will need a bigger squad to deal with the rigours of added fixtures.

Although SAS provide a lethal strike pairing, options behind the deadly duo lack conviction and as such Lacazette could well be a shrewd acquisition.
