Liverpool have begun talks with the agent of Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette about a summer move [L’Equipe]
French daily L’Equipe report on Sunday that Liverpool have begun talks with the agent of Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette about a summer move.
Alexandre Lacazette, 22, has been one of the stars of the season in Ligue 1, scoring 20 goals and grabbing three assist in 41 games in all competitions this season.
With his stock currently high, reports have been circling for a while that some of Europe’s top clubs are poised to pounce on Lacazette this summer.

The likes of Juventus, Arsenal and Everton have all been linked to the striker in recent weeks, and that has lead to the following quotes from the player and his employers.
According to Lacazette:
Would I like to play for Juventus? I’d be a liar if I said no. I’m tempted to try and experience abroad at a big club. And Juventus are one of the greatest clubs in Europe.
Are Arsenal and Liverpool interested in me? I repeat that an experience in another major championship fascinates me. But for now I just think of doing well for Lyon, the club where I have grown up.
By contrast, Lacazette’s employer, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, recently boomed “Lacazette will be with us again without a problem next year.”
Now Liverpool appear to be trying to tap up the forward through his agent, however whether the Reds will be successful in turning the head of their target remains to be see.
