Lacazette had set his sights on a summer move to Atletico Madrid until a transfer ban until January for signing under age-players was upheld.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has set his sights on signing a big-name striker this summer and Lacazette certainly fits the bill.

He scored 37 goals in all competitions this season and has emerged at the top of Klopp’s wanted list of strikers.

Lyon have not given up hope that Lacazette will remain with them in Ligue 1 next season but he is determined to play in the Champions League.
