Liverpool are in pole position to seal the signing of Lyon goal machine Alexandre Lacazette, according to reports.

The Reds have been scouting Lacazette for months and were strongly linked with a deal in the January transfer window.

He opted to stay put then, but looks certain to leave in the summer, and reports say Liverpool are in pole position to do business.

Brendan Rodgers' interest in the player has been confirmed by French football expert Julien Laurens, who told BT Sport the Reds 'really like him'.

Lacazette, 23, has scored 25 goals already this term.
