Done & Dusted: Aulas Somewhat Confirms Arsenal Deal For Aleksandre Lacazette

Arsenal may be unable to sign a striker in this transfer window as their search for a prolific striker is increasingly proving difficult.

The Gunners have been handed another huge blow in their quest to land Aleksandre Lacazette. This follows from a statement released by Lyon’s president revealing that they will not sell the player.

The 25-year-old France international has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates, with Lyon confirming last week that they had turned down a 29.3million Pounds offer from Arsenal for their lethal finisher.

Arsenal have already missed out on several strikers including Jamie Vardy, Gonzalo Higuain and so, are in desperate search of a finisher.

Despite the coach of Lyon saying they are open to sell Lacazette for a whopping sum, a Lyon-based local newspaper Le Progres now claims the Ligue 1 club have absolutely no desire to sell Lacazette.

“Alexandre is irreplaceable. It would be a professional mistake to sell him,” Aulas Said

“For me, he will score more goals than Cavani this season and I imagine him doing incredible things in the Champions League.

“For all these reasons, I cannot imagine him leaving. I think he wants to realise a big season with Lyon. Alexandre will be at Lyonnais.”

Lacazette scored 21 goals in 34 league appearances last season, and is under contract with Lyon until 2019.
