Arsenal certainly need to striker this summer, this much is widely accepted by all football fans and Pundits but with Jamie Vardy rejecting us, Aubameyang choosing to stay at Dortmund for at least another season, Lukaku priced to high and Morata looking like he is off to Chelsea, we are increasingly running out of options.
However, reports from France indicate that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has mandated that a bid of £45 million be put in for Alexandre Lacazette who has recently been linked with a move to West Ham. The Hammers are said to have had three bids rejected for the player. The last been a £35 million bid.
Lacazette has always been linked with a move to Arsenal but for the reported £45 million price tag, I can’t see this deal happening. He will no doubt be a good addition to our current team, unfortunately Lyon are demanding way too much money for him.
In my opinion, I believe we will ensure up signing someone like Islam Islimani who is said to be available for £24 million. And hopefully he will deliver. The French league is now that different from the Portuguese league.
I see the Lacazette to Arsenal rumours more of his agent trying to force West Ham’s hand using a fake interest from Arsenal.
