The French international has had an outstanding campaign in Ligue 1, scoring 31 goals in 40 appearances in all to establish himself as one of the best young strikers in the game.

Lacazette certainly looks like he could fit in at a bigger club, with the Premier League trio now believed to be hot on his tail ahead of next season, though Lyon are understandably keen to keep hold of their star.

Still, the French giants will accept offers of around £36m for the prolific 23-year-old, which may not be enough to scare away the likes of Liverpool and United, who both spent big last summer and who both urgently need new additions up front.

The Daily Star also lists Arsenal as admirers, and it may be that Arsene Wenger is considering Lacazette as an upgrade on Olivier Giroud.
