Liverpool boss Klopp ready to battle Atletico Madrid for €70M Lacazette

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has identified Alexandre Lacazette as a priority signing this summer.

The Lyon star is expected to be on the move at the end of this season and has offers from across Europe.

RMC says among the scramble is Liverpool, where manager Jurgen Klopp has received glowing reports from his scouts this season.

Klopp's former club Borussia Dortmund are also keen, however the stiffest competition will arrive from Atletico Madrid.

For their part, Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas is hopeful of sparking an auction for Lacazette with his price expected to reach €70 million.
