According to reports in France this week:
* LFC are considering a £10m 'cash offer' at the end of the season.
* The Reds have monitored Lacazette 'for most of the season'.
* Liverpool's scouts are impressed with the France international.
Some info about Lacazette:
* 22 years old.
* Can play on the wings, or up-front.
* Spent his entire career with Lyon.
* Three trophies with his club so far.
* 58 apps for various France youth teams.
* 2 apps for the senior national team.
* 2010: Winning for for France in the Under-19 European Championship final.
* STATS: 33 goals/28 assists in 137 apps for Lyon.
* Goal/assist every 2.2 games.
* 2009-2014: Goal/assist every 119 minutes (League only)
Lyon coach Remi Garde is impressed with Lacazette's progress this season, and in February, he argued that the striker deserves 'another chance' with the France national team, and praised his progress this season. He told So Foot:
"He [Lacazette] has made great strides this season, and shown that he is the best French striker. His scoring record is not far from Zlatan Ibrahimović, which shows the progress he has made"
Liverpool are sure to be linked with lots of versatile attacking players this summer, and the World Cup will inevitably throw-up a few hitherto unlinked targets. If the Reds are in the market for wingers/number 10-style attackers, then this throws further doubt on the futures of Aspas, Alberto, Suso etc.
