As an ardent follower of Arsenal, I’m sure you’d be struggling to make any sense of our transfer market activity hitherto. The only player we have signed you’d say is Granit Xhaka. *sighs*. Rob Holding and Takuma Asano were signed.
Earlier in the season, we had offers for Jamie Vardy turned down and latest reports reveals that Aleksandre Lacazette has ruled out the possibility of joining Arsenal, after several weeks of chasing the player.
The need for a striker at Arsenal is obvious and Wenger has been under huge pressure to reinforce his attack this summer.
However, a move for Lacazette is no longer possible after the player reiterated his desire to stay put with the Ligue 1 giants.
‘Concerning my personal situation, I do not think there will be a departure from Lyon,’ he said after scoring both goals in Lyon’s 2-0 win over Caen.
‘‘Everything is going well here.
‘I would like to pass the bar of 100 goals in all competitions. I would like to do that at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.’
Oliver Giroud is currently the only out-and-out Arsenal striker but Wenger has revealed that he would use Sanchez and Walcott upfront, which means he will not sign another attacker.
