According to reports in the British press Newcastle is ready to make a £25m offer to sign Lyon star Alexander Lacazette.
The French striker has been an Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea target for months but it seems the Magpies are desperate to revamp their attack, due also to Mitrovic‘s struggles in the Premier League.
Lacazzette, who score 7 goals in 16 in this season so far, recently spoke to The Telegraph about a possible move to England:
“Yes, I am thinking about it and the Premier League is very attractive for a player.
“But I know that to go there I have to do well this season. So I am very concentrated on doing well and maybe, after that, I will go there.
“So I know that it is possible that I will move to the Premier League and Lyon are aware of that also.”
