Alexandre Lacazette will only join a team who qualify for the Champions League next season.
But on top of that, they need to be a good footballing side and not a long-ball merchant.
(Sorry, Manchester United…)
The Frenchman has bagged 30 goals in all competitions this campaign and at 25, is one of Europe’s hottest properties.
“The team I join will have to be in the Champions League & play good football – pass the ball, not just hit it from box to box,” he told Sky Sports.
Lacazette has been lethal for Lyon for many a season and it seems inevitable that he’ll make a mega-move this summer.
Liverpool are likely to sell Daniel Sturridge and many would like us to bring in the 10-cap forward as a direct replacement, but we’re not sure Jurgen Klopp will be keen.
Our manager prefers Roberto Firmino centrally and we consider it unlikely that Klopp will bring in a player for over £50m who might not start when everyone’s fit.
Instead, we think Klopp will put his eggs in Julian Brandt’s basket and make a new centre-back, likely Virgil van Dijk, a priority.
