Former United striker: Alexandre Lacazette could thrive at Old Trafford


Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha says Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette could be an important signing for the club.

The Red Devils struggled in the offensive department last season with Falcao and Robin van Persie both enduring a relatively poor start to the season.

The Colombian's loan spell was not extended with the Dutchman rumoured to be ready to leave the club.

And Saha, who played more than 100 games for the club, believes 24-year-old Lacazette would bring an extra dimension to the United attack.

"I think it's a must United sign a striker," Saha told the Manchester Evening News.

"Because you have always the need for competition up front, that's what brings excellence to every player.

"So yes, I would say that a big name [like Falcao] is not something that is always good for a manager's experience.

"Maybe a bit more speed than before, to put the defenders on their toes a bit more and to get behind defenders.

"Could Lacazette thrive at United? I think so, it's obvious he's done really well in France, he's scored many, many goals because he can threaten behind, he can score from far, he's a very clever player."
