Alexandre Lacazette

With nine goals in 17 games for a struggling Lyon side Lacazette is the fourth highest
goal scorer in the Ligue 1 behind the likes of PSG pair of Ibrahimovic and Cavani.

A product of the Lyon youth system Lacazette has the technical ability to play up front
or in any of the attacking midfield roles. After winning the 2010 UEFA under-19 tournament Lacazette broke into the Lyon side and has since made 84 appearances.

Aged 22 he has really started to come into his own over the last 12 months or so with his performances being recognised with a two caps for the national side.

With age on his side Lacazette has the potential be a genuine star - and he could be a long term attacking threat for any number of Premier League sides.
