Liverpool want to sign a striker this summer as backup to superstar first-choice duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge…
The pair have bagged 50 Premier League goals between them, but Liverpool have little in terms of backup if should of them pick up an injury or suspension, with last summer signing Iago Aspas proving to be well below the required level.
As a result, they have begun talks with French side Lyon over the transfer of 22-year-old forward Alexandre Lacazette, reports French publication L’Equipe.
Lacazette can also play either wide on the left or the right, but has done well in Ligue 1 this term when deployed through the middle – bagging 14 goals and impressing with his pace and dynamic approach.
Liverpool will also be able to offer Lacazette Champions League football, which could further tempt the young forward, although first-team football will be, by no means guaranteed.
