Lacazette price rises again

West Ham's key summer transfer target Alexandre Lacazette is likely to cost any potential suitors up to 60million, say reports from France.

With Lacazette's current club Lyon needing to sell in order to balance the books at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais it was thought that West Ham were in pole position to sign the 5'9" forward.

However with Les Gones having sold Sameul Umtiti to Barcelona for a fee in the region of 30million last week, that shortfall has all but disappeared - meaning Lyon can hold out for even more than the 50million price West Ham had been quoted, say GFFN.




With a number of parties still interested in signing the 25-year-old, West Ham are unlikely to make an improved bid - as things stand.

And that could allow current favourites, Ligue 1 champions Paris St Germain, to complete a deal for a player who has always been reluctant to express a desire for a summer move to England, despite West Ham's overtures.
