West Ham have decided to reignite their interest in Alexandre Lacazette and are ready to offer Lyon £30m for his services, according to MirrorFootball.
The club have made it no secret that a marquee striker signing is a priority this season, but they have so far struggled to make much progress in their efforts.
We recently had a huge bid for Marseille’s Michy Batshuayi rejected, with the Belgium international reportedly holding out for a move to Spurs, and it seems Lacazette is once again the No.1 target.
Lacazette supposedly has his heart set on signing for a club competing in the Champions League, but it’s obvious West Ham feel they convince him to sign.
MirrorFootball claims both Tottenham and Newcastle had £20m offers rejected for the 25-year-old in January, and West Ham believe a £30m offer might just do the trick this summer.
Lacazette scored 23 goals in 43 first team appearances last term, and is valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt.com.
