Liverpool and Everton leading chase for quality international forward

LacazetteThere’s plenty of discussions here in the Transfer Tavern regarding strikers on the move this summer and fans from across the Merseyside divide are excited to hear their club’s lead the chase.

The Mirror states that the Premier League’s Merseyside duo Liverpool and Everton are leading the chase for Lyon’s French international forward Alexandre Lacazette.

Lacazette, the leading scorer in Ligue 1 last season, has struggled to replicate his form this term and with Lyon looking set to miss out on Champions League football next term, the striker is expected to move on at the end of the campaign.

With Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke set to leave their respective clubs this summer, both sides will enter the transfer market for new additions and Lyon are prepared to sell if they receive an offer of around £22m.

Having signed a five-year deal with the French giants only last year, Lyon are in a positive position to negotiate their price but the Merseyside pairing could find things difficult to reach a deal if other clubs enter the market.

Which club should Lacazette join? Let us know in the comments below!
