Alexandre Lacazette

Alexandre Lacazette

With fifteen goals in Ligue 1 this season, the 22 year old striker is reported to be interesting a number of European clubs. Newcastle are believed to be one of those monitoring Lacazette’s situation, along with Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool and Juventus.

Although he is contracted until 2016, Lyon’s financial woes could prompt the club to cash in on one of their prized assets. With Shola Ameobi, Luuk de Jong and Loic Remy all set to depart, Newcastle should consider Lacazette as they look to bolster their strikeforce for next season.
