The Special One Jose Mourinho is already making plans for the next summer transfer market as he has already spoken to Lyon about a possible summer swoop for their prolific goal scorer Alexandre Lacazette, this is according to Sunday People, as per the Daily Mirror.
The 24-year-old was in top form for Lyon last season and ended last season as one of the best strikers in Europe. He finished the season with 27 goals in 33 appearances for the French giants. However, he is struggling to replicate his form for last season. He’s scored one goals this season.
As per the report, Mourinho held talks with Lyon over a possible move for the player next summer. Although Mourinho is already pro-active, it is understood that Lyon and Lacazette are reluctant about any move. It is suggested that Lacazette want to remain in France ahead of Euro 2016, in other to get a place in the French team.
Nonetheless, Chelsea have back-ups to Costa in the likes of Remy and Falcao but both back-ups are failing to live up to their bidding. Hence, Mourinho’s quest to land the lethal Lacazette. Costa scored 20 goals for the Blues last season, firing them to the league glory.
Currently, Costa and Falcao has scored once in the League.
