Irons admit striker interest – plus 11 others!

LacazWest Ham have tonight admitted the club has been tracking Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette but have warned fans not to get fixated on the odd one or two strikers mentioned in the media.

We were told by our most senior source: “He is one of 12 we have been looking at. We scout a huge number of players every season and Lacazette is one of them.

“It would be wrong for anyone to run off with the idea – as always seems to be inferred – that the name which may escape into the public domain is the only one that interests us.”

The Sun reported earlier today that Slaven Bilic is believed to have asked Dimitri Payet to help convince his fellow countryman to move to the Premier League.

French international Lacazette has scored 64 goals in 165 Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon, attracting the attentions of Newcastle in the January transfer window.

The player’s agent declared that the Lyon star wouldn’t decide his future until summer adding that at the moment his future was seen as being at the French club.

And our source said: “That is our understanding too. He’s on the list – along with all the others!”
