Manchester City are eyeing up a possible move for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in the January transfer window, as reported by the Daily Express.
The Etihad Stadium club sent scouts to watch him in the French cup against RC Lens, having seen Lacazette play exceptionally well thus far this season.
Lacazette is the top scorer in Ligue 1, having scored 17 goals since the start of the campaign, and as a result, he has caught the attention of several clubs.
One of those interested in Lacazette are Liverpool, who hoped that the Lyon star would be able to aid them in their striker crisis.
However, Man City possess the financial firepower to blow the Anfield club out of the water with any offer for the £15 million rated ace.
City need a striker in January, with injuries to Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero seeing them turn to James Milner as a replacement forward.
