Spanish side Atletico Madrid are making moves to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, according to L’Équipe.
The newspaper claims that concrete and advanced negotiations are occurring between Atleti and the relevant parties to try to sign the player. Lacazette himself is privately prioritising a move to join Diego Simeone’s men, according to the report.
The contours of a four or five year contract have already been drawn out and Atleti apparently see this potential transfer as another strong argument to convince Antoine Griezmann to stay at Atleti, as the two individuals are close.
Lyon want €60m to sell the player.
