West Ham have submitted a club-record £32m bid to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette this summer.
According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, West Ham want to make another big splash in the Ligue 1 market a year after signing Dimitri Payet from Marseille.
The Hammers have been linked with a move for Lacazette for much of the summer with the club reportedly having already seen a £26m offer for the striker turned down.
However, they have upped their bid to £32m, again reminding Lyon that they are prepared to pay a huge fee for their star striker. Lyon are yet to respond to the offer which they will continue to consider.
Despite scoring 23 goals this past season – his third straight season scoring 20+ goals in French football, Lacazette was omitted from France’s Euro 2016 squad by manager Didier Deschamps in favour of the likes of Kingsley Coman and Anthony Martial.
The 25-year-old striker looks destined to leave Lyon this summer with the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Arsenal all having been linked with moves for the Frenchman.
West Ham are determined to land a big-money striker before the start of the season and their latest offer for Lacazette is a real statement of intent.
