Sign him up: Tottenham fans urge Levy to secure reported 25-year-old target
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham fans on Twitter have pleased with chairman Daniel Levy to sign Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette in the summer transfer window.
The Daily Mirror reported in March that Spurs are interested in signing the 25-year-old, but face competition from Premier League rivals Liverpool and Arsenal.
The report detailed that the France international has indicated he is prepared to leave Lyon in the summer after impressing during his time in Ligue 1.
Lacazette reminded people of his qualities on Thursday night with a stunning goal in the Europa League.
The striker scored a fantastic long-range effort and assisted another for Lyon in a 4-2 victory over Roma.

Lacazette has been an ever-present for Lyon in recent seasons since graduating through the club’s academy in 2010 and breaking into the first-team.
He has racked up 263 appearances so far for the French giants and has scored 120 goals in return.
The forward has become renowned as one of the most consistent performers in Europe and could now want to prove his worth elsewhere.
Lacazette has reached new levels this season and scored a remarkable 28 goals in just 33 appearances.
Spurs are likely to be on the look-out for a new striker in the summer transfer window to provide competition for their talisman Harry Kane, who has 24 goals in 28 appearances.
Mauricio Pochettino signed attacker Vincent Janssen last summer, but he has been unable to adjust to the Premier League.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club are being tipped to sign a 32-goal striker.
