Alexandre Lacazette: Liverpool favourites to land Lyon man


Liverpool have been tipped to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazetta, ahead of Premier League rivals Arsenal, the Daily Express understand. 

The highly-rated 23-year-old has impressed in his homeland, and remains the top scorer in the French top-flight, having netted 24 goals this season. 

And such form for Lyon has alerted both Liverpool and Arsenal, with the Anfield outfit favourites to land the internationally capped player. 

French Sports Journalist, Julien Laurens, revealed that Liverpool are leading the race to land the forward, in a recent interview with the Sport Review: “I think if Lyon win the league, he will go, stated Laurens.

“If they qualify for the Champions League by finishing second or third I think he might give it another year. 

“I think he has always wanted to be at the top level and play in the Champions League with his home club.

“It’s his first really big season and I’m just not sure if he is good enough already for a top-four club in England.

“I think the Bundesliga will suit him more than any other league.

“I really believe he would do well in the Bundesliga but I think he prefers England he might try to come over here.

“I think Brendan Rodgers really likes him.

“Rodgers likes those types of players that can play anywhere up front and with a lot of movement, so I think he could eventually fit in well there.

“But as I said, I’m just not sure if he is ready for that just yet.”
