The Hammers, who have cast their net far and wide as they look for a world class frontman to add to their squad, had a bid of £32m turned down last month for the 25-year-old.

Since then Arsenal have had a bid of £29.3m turned down by the club, unsurprisingly, but at the same time the French club appear to have let it be known that £40m-plus is the key figure that could trigger a move.

Lacazette, who scored 23 goals last season and 31 the season before, as well as AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca and Toulouse hitman Wissam Ben Yedder have all been linked with a move to the Hammers and boss Slavan Bilic is hoping to hook one out of the three before the season starts.
