West Ham launch £32million offer

West Ham United are reported to have returned to Lyon with an improved offer for striker Alexandre Lacazette.

David Amoyal, a columnist for gianlucadimarzio.com has reported within the last couple of hours that West Ham have launched a fresh bid for the highly-rated striker worth in the region of £32million - approximately €40million.

The offer is now said to be in the hands of Lyon chiefs, who must decide whether to accept what would be a record-breaking transfer fee for West Ham or hold out for an improved bid from elsewhere.

However the chances of that happening appear to be slim, with fellow suitors Tottenham and PSG reported in recent days to have moved onto other targets.

West Ham launched an initial bid for the 24-year-old goalscorer last month when the club offered Lyon £26million. The club's current record transfer fee stands at £15million, the fee paid to Liverpool for Andy Carroll three years ago.
