Chelsea are the latest team to have reportedly entered the race to sign Lyon striker, Alexandre Lacazette.
- Chelsea turn attention to Lacazette after being priced out of Lukaku move
- Liverpool, Manchester United, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund all also linked
- Player leaving and staying, Arsenal bid confirmed and denied: Lacazette – what’s going on?
Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for Lacazette again this summer.
However, with Lyon president Jean-Michael Aulas reportedly claiming that the 26-year-old won’t be moving and then conflicting quotes emerging over whether a bid has been made or not, the deal, if there is one, still seems to be up in the air.
The Gunners are supposedly willing to offer £60m for the Frenchman. However, according to L’Equipe, Chelsea look set to miss out on one of their main transfer targets, Romelu Lukaku, after Everton allegedly slapped the Belgium international with a £79m price tag.
Therefore, Antonio Conte is said to be looking for other proven goalscorers that won’t cost quite as much.
Liverpool and Manchester United are also allegedly interested in the prolific striker, who netted 37 goals in 45 appearances last season.
