Arsenal In Talks With Lyon For Alexandre Lacazette

Alexandre Lacazette 1

Reports are out claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has held talks with Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette about a move to London.

The Mirror reported that Wenger has held transfer talks over Lacazette – but the price remains a sticking point.

Lyon striker Lacazette, 25, is believed to have a release clause of £34m but the French club are trying to drive the price up with several clubs interested.

West Ham, Tottenham and Atletico Madrid have also made enquiries and Lyon will be hoping it develops into an auction.

Arsenal boss Wenger is keen but is wary of the buy-out clause price let alone going higher for a player who has been prolific in France but did not make the Euro 2016 squad.

Wenger is desperate to sign a striker this summer and Lacazette’s pace and movement appeals to him after Arsenal missed out on Jamie Vardy.
