The 22-year-old has been in spectacular form this season, bagging himself 13 goals in 27 appearances for the former champions, and his performances have caught the attention of some of Europe’s finest.
And Lacazette will come up against one of his supposed potential suitors next month when Lyon take on Juventus in the last eight of the Europa League.
Sources close to the Italian giants have claimed that they will use the tie as the perfect excuse to get a closer look at the player in lieu of a summer move to boost their forward line.
However, they aren’t the only one that will be keeping a close watch on him as Spurs have also identified him as the man to give their own attack a much needed lift.
Spurs are eager to bring someone in that can take over from Spaniard Roberto Soldado, who has failed to live up to expectations following a summer move from Valencia.
Lacazette has a current deal with Lyon that lasts until 2016 but it is understood that his valuation is around £15m.
