The Reds are in need of real strengthening in attack after woeful seasons from the likes of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert, who have not come close to filling the void left by last summer’s departing star striker Luis Suarez.
With that in mind, Liverpool are hoping to move quick to bring in two new forward players in the next transfer window, with a £49.2m double deal looking on the cards after the club made significant progress in both deals.
The two players in question are as follows:
1) Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon)
According to the Metro, Liverpool are already in advanced talks with Lyon over the signing of 31-goal striker and rumoured Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette. The 23-year-old looks one of the best prospects in the game and looks like he can move for a bargain £35m this summer after this outstanding season in France.
