Napoli are considering making a move for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, an Arsenal target, to replace Juventus bound Gonzalo Higuain.

Juventus have signalled they will meet Higuain's €94.7m release clause and have already put the former Real Madrid striker through a medical in the Spanish capital.

Higuain has also agreed terms with Juventus on a four-year contract worth €7.5m per year.

Now Napoli are considering their next move, with a number of strikers being offered to the club by agents.

On the list of those last season's Serie A runners-up are considering, according to Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, is Lyon hitman Lacazette.


Lacazette has been linked with Arsenal and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a self-confessed fan, but Lyon have been holding tight to their attacking jewel this summer.

It has been suggested that €60m from Napoli could do the trick for the striker though and the Italian club are carefully plotting how to spend their €94.7m windfall.

Higuain had also been linked with Arsenal, but is now bound for Juventus.
