Manchester United are preparing to make an offer to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazzette in the summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Manchester United have decided to switch their focus from Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann to Lyon’s prolific goal-scorer Lacazzette.

The same article states that the Red Devils are preparing to submit a £50m bid to sign the 26-year-old France international in the 2017 summer transfer window.

Lacazzette has previously been linked with a move to Manchester United’s bitter rivals Arsenal regularly over the past couple of transfer windows.

The Lyon star scored 28 times in 30 appearances in Ligue 1 throughout the 2016-17 season.

Manchester United secured their place in the Champions League next season thanks to a 2-0 win against Eredivisie giants Ajax in the Europa League final.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson stood down as manager.

Manchester United broke the transfer record with the £89m signing of Paul Pogba.
