According to our colleagues at Goal France, Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette is closer than ever to the departure door this summer.
They report that the player has been taking intensive English lessons in recent weeks and that his girlfriend has all of a sudden stopped looking for a job in the Lyon area, possibly suggesting that the player is headed away from Lyon this summer, specifically to England and the Premier League.
L’Équipe reported this morning that Manchester United are regularly surveilling Lacazette’s performances and he remains on a list of potential summer targets for the Red Devils, but that West Ham United, Atletico Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur are the three sides in pole position at the moment for the French international.
It is understood that several offers have been made for the player by some or all of those three clubs since the January transfer window…
Newcastle United, should they remain in the Premier League, may also fancy another go for the player after being turned down on numerous occasions last January.
