Chelsea eye January move for Lyon’s goal machine?

Chelsea are reportedly considering a swoop for Lyon frontman Alexandre Lacazette in January transfer window, according to The Express.

The France international has caught the attention of a several number of Premier League clubs over the summer, with Liverpool and Manchester United are also being linked with the striker.

The Premier League champions looks to reinforce the squad with more attacking options following the defence of their title difficult in the early stages of the new season, losing three out of their first six matches.

After this disappointing start, the west London club could be looking at the 24-year-old as an option to deliver more goals in the second half of the season.

Lacazette has scored 27 goals in 33 Ligue 1 appearances last term and would cost around £25m.
