Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is ready to bolster his impressive attacking options this summer with a £10m summer offer for Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette, according to The Metro.
The 22-year-old has flourished with freedom in attack at Lyon this season, scoring 18 goals in all competitions to maintain an eye-catching strike rate of notching in ever other game.
Reds boss Rodgers has had the versatile young striker watched on several occasions this season and is now reportedly ready to make Lyon an offer in the region of £10m for one of Europe's most dynamic young stars.
Lyon are in a precarious financial position and the Metro believe they will be open doing business during the close season at the right price, despite losing a homegrown top scorer in the process.
Rodgers was frustrated in his attempts to strengthen Liverpool in January but an exciting blend of youth and experience have stayed on course for Champions League qualification regardless, which makes potential summer recruitment a tantalising prospect for Reds fans.
Lacazette would have a tough job on earning a regular starting spot ahead of the likes of Daniel Strurridge at Anfield, but much like the Liverpool duo can operate in an advanced wide role or through the middle to fit a variety of systems.
