Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs set to battle over French international

Lyon's striker Lacazette has become a January target for three Premier League contenders: Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham. 

The Daily Mail explained that since Lacazette starred for France at the European U19 Championships he "is already being tipped to break through into the senior team this season."

French reports have suggested that the tussle to lure Lacazette is already underway between the English teams.

Lacazette impressed the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Cup over the Summer and could help strengthen the Gunner's attacking power.  

Arsenal's rivals Tottenham are also reported to be interested in the young striker according to the French media. 

Reports suggest that Harry Redknapp, the Spurs manager, could be looking to change his attacking options by getting rid of Robbie Keane and Peter Crouch. Lazzio could be just what he is looking for to bring a more versatile attacking option to White Heart Lane.

Liverpool are the latest team to be put into the battle to attract Lacazette. The French media claim that Damien Commoli, Liverpool's new Director of Football strategy is believed to have ordered the Anfield scouts to keep a vigilant eye on the Frenchman. 

Lacazette could be just what Roy Hodgson needs to improve Liverpool's chance of finishing in the top four providing another option to play upfront with Fernando Torres. 

Despite the current battle to bring Lacazette over to the Premier League, Lyon are rumoured to be reluctant to part with the young star.
