This summer has been dubbed the most difficult for Arsenal and Wenger on the transfer front as they have failed to sign a goal poacher despite their search.
Despite announcing the capture of Granit Xhaka early on before the commencement of the transfer widow, Arsenal are yet to conclude business, and the fans have had to watch our transfer targets leave for other clubs. or sign contract extensions.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Alexandre Lacazette, and the stories keep swinging from sublime success to near nervousness. Olymoique Lyon earlier released an official statement that they rejected an offer from Arsenal. However, Wenger in an inimitable fashion has doused such claims.
Via Skysports, the manager is quoted as saying: “Lyon is responsible for their own statements,” he said.
“On the transfer front, I think the best option is always to keep as secret as possible. If we sign somebody, we will announce it. But I cannot tell you much more on that.”
Lacazette remains our only realistic striker target available in the transfer market. Gonzalo Higuain just completed a big money move to Juve and Mauro Icardi looks like he will be staying at Inter Milan.
