This summer’s transfer window is almost guaranteed to see more drawn-out sagas and huge transfer fees

#4 Alexandre Lacazette

31 goals in 2014-15, 23 in 2015-16 and he’s currently on 29 for this current season

There’s no better word to describe the goal record of Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette in recent years than phenomenal. 31 goals in 2014-15, 23 in 2015-16 and he’s currently on 29 for this current season. It’s reminiscent of Harry Kane.

While he inexplicably missed out on France’s Euro 2016 squad, it hasn’t held him back this season and while he scored the winner for Lyon in their Champions League group stage match with Dinamo Zagreb, the fact that Lyon didn’t make the knockout stage may signal the end for him there.

Today’s top players want Champions League football, and Lacazette has already been rumoured to have stated his wish to leave Lyon in the summer.

Money talks and so naturally the Premier League could be top of the list of potential destinations, so where could he end up? Both Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked with him but the Blues – likely winners of the league – are the favourites as they can guarantee him Champions League football.

With the future of Diego Costa seemingly always in flux, Lacazette could step in to replace him as a practically guaranteed goalscorer, assuming he could make the step up in quality.
