Alexandre Lacazette wanted by Liverpool

Published Add your comment

According to the Daily Express Liverpool are seriously considering a bid for 23-year-old Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette. 

Attentions turned following rejection

Liverpool's attentions have been drawn to the Lyon man, following failed bids for William Bony and Romelu Lukaku. Lacazette has enjoyed a breakthrough season with domestic side Lyon last term - netting 15 goals in 32 matches to ensure a fifth-pace finish in Ligue 1.

However Liverpool are fully aware that Lacazette is not a replacement for Suarez as a recognisable name that would appease the fans or in terms goals scoring stats.

The french striker is untried in the Premier League, which constitutes a potential risky purchase considering Lyon would be looking for a fee of £16million. 

Liverpool's capture of 20-year-old Bosnian winger Lazar Markovic for a significant £20million fee already represents a gamble for Brendan Rodgers, and the Northern Irishman will be keen to ensure squad harmony and positivity remains at an all-time high.

Reus rumours
