Newcastle pushing to close deal for Lyon striker Lacazette

Newcastle United are pushing to close a deal for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.

The Evening Chronicle says Toon's hopes of luring Lacazette to Tyneside could be about to take a major dent.

The Lyon star is on Newcastle's wanted list and talk over his price has continued in the opening weeks of the transfer window. Liverpool are also interested in the striker after Luis Suárez's departure to Barcelona but both appear to have been put off by the asking price of £16million for his services.

The Magpies may also opt out if those are the sort of numbers that Lyon are quoting.
