Higuain, Cavani, Morata, Vardy, Islimani and Janssen are some of the strikers who have been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer. But if you believe reports in the English media today, Arsenal have finally made an headway in their bid to sign a striker this summer.
According to the reports, West Ham who have been linked with the signing of French striker Alexandre Lacazette have given up on the chase for the Frenchman as they believe Arsenal have won the race for the signature of the 25-year-old striker.
Lyon reportedly value the player at £45 million and are said to be ready to keep the player unless the full £45 million is paid. The representatives of West Ham were said to have flown to France this week to try to reach an agreement on personal terms with the player. Lacazette has scored 72 goals in 172 games for Lyon ever since he broke into their first team six years ago.
Should Arsenal sign him, it will be interesting to see who will be first choice between he and Giroud and considering the price been quoted, Wenger is very unlikely to make such a move. Bu again, Wenger paid £42.5 million for Mesut Ozil.
