Tottenham in talks to make £30m striker first summer signing – report

Tottenham are in talks about the signing of Alexandre Lacazette this summer, say reports

Tottenham have opened talks about the possibility of signing Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in a £30m deal this summer, according to reports.

The north London club are expected to be one of the busiest clubs in the summer transfer window as Mauricio Pochettino prepares his side for a return to the Champions League next season.

Lacazette has long been linked with a transfer to the Premier League and has been touted as a target for Arsenal in recent years.

Now, the Daily Mirror is reporting that Spurs are keen to bring the forward to White Hart Lane ahead of next season.

The same report goes on to say that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has targeted the France international, who is also attracting interest from West Ham and Paris Saint-Germain.

West Ham have had one bid rejected, but Tottenham feel they are leading the race for his signature after holding talks with his representatives.
