Everton, Liverpool and West Ham are all lining up summer bids for Lyon ace Alexandre Lacazette, according to reports in France.

The Frenchman was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal last summer but the Gunners failed to match Lyon's asking price for the forward.

Lacazette, who earlier this year admitted a move to the Premier League is on the cards, has been in fine form of late, scoring six goals in his last five appearances for the Ligue 1 side, taking his overall tally to 18 this campaign.

Rated as one of the hottest attacking talents in Europe, Lacazette rejected a move to Newcastle in January after Lyon accepted a £22m bid for him, with the intention of waiting for a club with European prospects to come in for him.

And now, according to Le 10 Sport, Liverpool, West Ham and Everton are set to make contact with Lyon about luring Lacazette across the channel in the summer.

Everton are on the lookout for a potential replacement for Romelu Lukaku should he join Chelsea or Manchester United, while Liverpool and West Ham are also eager to land a proven goalscorer.
