Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting excited heading into the summer after The Sun (subscription required) revealed they are frontrunners to sign Marseille striker Alexandre Lacazette.
The reason why they are favourites to land the 23-year-old is because they are set to offer £15m plus Loic Remy.
This would give the Ligue 1 club a good amount of money as well as a proven striker, who has previously impressed at Lyon.
It is no shock Chelsea are doing all they can secure the French international, considering he has scored 30 goals in 37 starts in the league, this season.
Wages will not be a problem for the Blues because Lacazette is only on £12,000-a-week at the moment and Chelsea will happily quadruple what he is currently earning.
Punters are confident that if Remy agrees this deal then it would swing the move in Chelsea’s favour massively!
