Paris Saint Germain are said to have offered £21.7m for Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette, according to Le10Sport.

The French striker has scored 27 goals in Ligue 1 this season and has attracted the likes of many on-looking European sides, who have all enquired as to his current asking price, reportedly set at around £21.7m.

Liverpool, Newcastle and Chelsea have led interest, whilst a lucrative move to Qatar has also been mentioned in the French press.

Man United boss Louis van Gaal has also been keen on a summer move having turned his attention from Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani, however, it now seems that the French side have also made an offer for Lacazette.

Lacazette is keen to stay in France but a move to title rivals Lyon would certainly cause some upset.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is willing to try PSG’s interest, but our sources confirm that United are no longer keen on moving forward with developments.
