The Frenchman has scored an amazing 24 goals in 28 appearances this season for the Ligue 1 side, grabbing five assists as well. This would seem to have piqued Reds manager Brendan Rodgers’ interest as his side are currently struggling with Daniel Sturridge out injured and others out of form.

Paris St. Germain are supposedly also interested in the 23-year-old, and the presence of the French team may mean that the price for him may be increased. The Ligue 1 champions would likely be able to beat the Merseyside club if it comes down to a transfer auction…

If Rodgers can capture Lacazette, be it now or in the summer, he’ll be hoping that the he does better than the forwards he signed in 2014. Mario Balotelli has yet to score in the Premier League, and Rickie Lambert has also been struggling. Lacazette though provides the pace and dynamism the aforementioned strikers lack, however.
