Sky Italia journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio claims that the Hammers have made a fresh bid of £32m to Lyon for Alexandre Lacazette. PSG are said to have cooled their interest and West Ham are keen to test the resolve of Lyon president Aulas again before a self imposed 1st July deadline.
The 25-year-old scored 23 times in 44 appearances for Lyon last term, and he is regarded as one of the best strikers in Europe.
The West Ham offer is said to be just over €40m and could well be tempting to Lyon. Last month Lyon confirmed they rejected a €40m offer for Lacazette from West Ham. “For a sale to be made, all three parties must agree. We have refused several offers, the most important from West Ham for 40m euros and we refused it,” Aulas previously told French daily Le Progres.
Di Marzio adds that “Lacazette could be leaving France to play in the Premier League.”
Yesterday we reported that Lacazette screamed “Payeeeeeeeet” followed by eight smileys and the French flag on twitter to show his love for the West Ham midfielder.
It’s down to the player. If he wants to come to us, the David’s will stump up the readies, unless a bidding war starts. This article does show, however, the imporatance of hanging on to Payet. Every striker in every major league must realise that Payet will lay on bucket loads of chances for them.
Imagine this fellow, Payet, Sakho and Enner. Anyone see Enner last night, cant believe we are keeping Carroll ahead of either Sakho or Enner. Sell Carroll and bring in Laca and a few wingers – wow we would be incredible.
Yeah he was great against that powerhouse of international football Haiti lol
I read it as well.If he wants to go let him go.It doesn’t bother me at all.Though I don’t take much Sky say too seriously.
Found this rather interesting on Wikipedia, It shows his current team as West Ham United, hmmmmm….
Lol,someone has been playing games.It said some other player played for us once before.He was wanted by the club but never came close to joining us.I forget who it was now but he was an Irons player according to Wiki 🙂
If he is who Slav wants the let Sak go and go and get him make him feel wanted use the money from Sak the saving by getting our new winger free our defensive midfielder free,
We can still then afford a free right back and a CH and I am sure there will be other freebies about to cover Emineke like Fletcher free from Sunderland as a back up
