Tottenham have opened talks with Lyon about the potential £30 million signing of highly rated forward Alexandre Lacazette, according to reports from the Mirror.
Lacazette has enjoyed a successful season in Ligue 1, where he scored 21 goals during the league campaign and notched another two times during Lyon’s short lived Champions League effort.
The impressive record follows the Frenchman’s even more impressive 2014/15 season, where he netted a total of 31 times in all competitions, and finished the top scorer in the division with 27 goals.
Form like that will of course turn heads, and the France international – who has spent his whole career at current club Lyon – is set to depart the Parc Olympique Lyonnais this summer amidst interest from West Ham, PSG and the favourite to secure his services – Tottenham.
