Cape Town - Liverpool are weighing up the option of making a move for Lyon star Alexandre Lacazette this summer.

talkSPORT report that Alexandre Lacazette has emerged as a top transfer target for Liverpool.

Liverpool are plotting a move for Lacazette which could end interest in Aston Villa's Christian Benteke.

The 24-year-old striker has previously been linked with Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester United as well as PSG and Bayern Munich.

The French international has been with Lyon since turning professional and has gone on to earn over 130 caps for the Ligue 1 side.
