Newcastle United have made a new move for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette. The Evening Chronicle says Lyon recently slapped a fee of €20million on Lacazette but United's progress on the deal have only reached the "enquiry" stage according sources at the Ligue 1 club.

And United have asked them if they would be prepared to deal for what they see as a competitive offer.

Lacazette was linked with Liverpool this summer but it is believed that they are yet to show their hand.
