According to a report on Gianluca Di Marzio, West Ham United are ready to make a new offer for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette of £32 million.

West Ham have already lodged bids for Lacazette this transfer window, but Lyon have so far rejected their offers.

However, the London club are now prepared to make an increased offer for the French international, as they aim to bolster their forward line.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic appears to have made signing a striker his top priority in the upcoming transfer window, and Lacazette appears to be at the top of his wishlist.

The 25-year-old scored 23 times in 44 appearances for Lyon last term, and he is regarded as one of the best strikers in Europe.

Lacazette’s arrival at West Ham would outline their ambitions as they move into the Olympic Stadium.
