Tottenham are leading the race to sign Alexandre Lacazette.
The Lyon striker is already on the wanted list of Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton. But he now looks certain to go to White Hart Lane in a £23.5million deal at the end of the season.
Spurs have been told the 24-year-old will be available at the right price and with the guarantee of Champions League football after five seasons in the Europa League, they look hot favourites to get their man.
Last year, the North Londoners spent an unsuccessful summer trying to sign forward-line reinforcements with West Bromwich Albion’s Saido Berahino their first choice.
Lacazette went into this weekend’s matches with 17 Ligue 1 goals to his name and is hoping to earn a place in the France squad for the European Championship.
He has already played 10 times for his country and scored one international goal.
Lacazette is currently behind Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud in Les Bleus' pecking order, but he is hoping a successful finale to his season will mean he gets selected for the Euros.
