Recent reports indicate that Liverpool are arguably the busiest and the most title-minded club in the English premier league at the moment. After the sale of Raheem Sterling to Manchester City, they have gone on to recruit a number of stars, including Christian Benteke and Danny Ings; thus boosting their squad strength, and making a huge statement of intent ahead of the new season.
Arsenal, Manchester United, as well as Manchester City have all added fresh blood to their teams, and all would look to lay hold on the English Premier league title, come next year.
However, Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers appears to have no limits to his cash-splashing abilities, and he is allegedly yet to be fully satisfied with his improved squad. Reports state categorically that he is closing in on a move for Lyon and France talisman, Alexandre Lacazette, and may finalise a deal in the coming days.
The 24 year-old striker, currently valued at £25 million, scored 27 goals for Lyon in the Ligue 1 last season. Good in the air and on land, he would definitely be a plus to the striker problems of a club like Liverpool, whose top goalscorer last term managed only 9 goals! With Fabio Borini and Mario Balotelli looking set to depart Anfield, Liverpool’s frontline attacking unit may well now consist of Lacazette, lining up alongside Divock Origi and Christian Benteke.
