Liverpool could yet be given a boost in their hunt to sign Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette after reports in France confirmed the talented 24-year-old is yet to agree a new contract with the Ligue 1 club.
Lacazette emerged as one of the brightest French talents coming through the ranks at the Stade de Gerland a few years ago, and enjoyed his best season to date courtesy of his 27 league goals in just 33 outings to help Lyon finish second behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
However, despite Lacazette’s contract running until June 2018, French newspaper L’Equipe reports that he could hand in a stunning transfer request to rock the club and try to force through a move to another European club.
Liverpool aren’t the only side interested in Lacazette though, with Champion League heavyweights Bayern Munich also monitoring his future along with PSG, who hope that the allure of remaining in France will appeal to Lacazette.
