Yesterday L'Equipe revealed the French club have given their top goalscorer an ultimatum; sign a new deal or you are free to leave, following a reported breakdown in the relationship, with Liverpool in pole position to pounce.

However the French newspaper are now claiming the Ligue 1 top goalscorer will sign a new deal and stay at Lyon. News that will come as a blow to the Anfield club.

The Merseyside club were put on high alert following a reported fallout between the striker, who scored 31 goals last season, and the club following his antics in pre-season and performances in the Trophee des Champions.

But it now appears those problems have been put behind the two parties, as the 24-year-old heads towards a new deal in France.

Arsenal were also reported to be interested in the France international, but their interest had gone quiet in recent weeks, following his poor performances in the Emirates Cup.

Liverpool have already revamped their striking department this season with the arrivals of Christian Benteke, Danny Ings and Roberto Firmino, along with the return of Divock Origi.

With Daniel Sturridge continuing his return from injury Liverpool appear to have a strong attack in comparison to their strike force last season.

The addition of Lacazette may have been the icing on the cake for the Anfield club, but it appears the strikers imminent future remains in France following this latest news.

Liverpool are looking like a much stronger team than this time 12 months ago, but you can't help but feel the addition of Lacazette would have taken them on to that next level.

Liverpool fans: Would you have liked Lacazette to move to Merseyside? Have your say below?
