'He's not far from Zlatan': LFC to make £10m summer offer for France's 'best striker'.

Liverpool are reportedly preparing to make a summer offer for Lyon attacker Alexandre Lacazette during the upcoming summer transfer window, though as per usual when it comes to LFC's transfer targets, Tottenham Hotspur are also allegedly interested, along with Arsenal.

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.



  1. When I first saw Suarez in WC2010, I wished he becomes a liverpudian, may be we can point out one or two more unknown/under-rated players this summer :)

  2. and when i first saw coates in 2011 south american cup he was the player i wished him to join LFC and then he did it.. he was class but injury kept him

  3. I love the idea of us just having loads of dead tricky fast lads. I know that we can't have a whole team of them really but god it's so entertaining to watch. Good stats for a lad of his age and he looks like he has a trick in him.

  4. I'd believe you if you brought any actual "proof" or " facts" into the equation, instead of concocting a half-arsed story based on dubious tabloid stories and an ambiguous line by a third party.
    Who are you anyway? Chances are you're just a bitter Man utd fan.

  5. My last comment was deleted it would seem. The jist of it was that this article is sensationalist nonsense. You claim proof then produce speculation, opinion and conjecture at best. Expected more from this website

  6. What is the point? Are we here to debate football or hearsay? Let's keep it sensible.

  7. RDB wasn't lying, but he misstated his facts. Monday, 21 May 2012, De Boer rejected an offer for an interview for the Liverpool job. http://www.theguardian.com/football/2012/may/21/liverpool-frank-de-boer-ajax. The link of the Radio interview from talksport states this, "The Ajax boss was linked with the role at Anfield before Brendan Rodgers was appointed in May 2012, and was a target for Spurs following Andre Villas-Boas’ departure from White Hart Lane last December

And you are going to believe us, and you are going to believe us, and yuu are going to believe us......WE'RE GOING TO WIN THE LEAGUE

  8. "This is probably Rodgers helping Agger save face for being dropped again" come on Jamie don't be so stubborn!!

  9. I'd put more credence in the Ancelotti line than the FDB line.

    RDB sounds to me like he's referencing last "season" as opposed to a year ago from now.

    But the Ancelotti line definitely makes an in-season reference, and I wouldn't be the least bit shocked if an inquiry was made there.

  11. Saloman Kalou, an also-ran at Chelski, has almost as many goals as this guy in Ligue 1. I don't trust the quality of Ligue 1. If Suso thinks Spain is slower than England, then he would probably love France. Zlatan is ripping up France like he never ripped up Serie A or La Liga. He has scored close to twice as many goals as his normal seasonal output in La Liga or Italy. Pass on this guy.
