Roma may join Liverpool, Everton and West Ham in the race for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, according to Corriere Dello Sport in Italy. New manager Luciano Spalletti wants to replace former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko as he doesn’t think he fits into his style of play. Dzeko, who has scored eight goals in 27 league matches, has not started a game since mid March in a away match against Udinese and the Corriere Dello Sport believe that Juventus’s Simone Zaza and Lyon’s Lacazette would be a better fit.
24 year old Lacazette has scored 18 goals this season and according to reports in France by Le 10 Sport last week, Liverpool, Merseyside rivals Everton and West Ham are all keeping tabs on the player. Everton are looking to replace Romelu Lukaku who is expected to leave in the summer while the Reds have been tracking the French international for a while. Lacazette told the Telegraph back in January that he was interested in a move to the Premier League in the summer; he said:
“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.”
