Arsenal are closing in on a club record fee of £50m for Alexander Lacazette, according to Sky Sports.

The France international scored 37 times in 45 games for Lyon last season. Club president Jean-Michel Aulas recently claimed the striker would be remaining with the club after a move to Atletico Madrid fell through.

Arsenal will be hoping the striker can fire them into a title charge next season. The Gunners are set for Europa League football for the first time under Arsene Wenger and it is unclear whether the boss will utilise his fringe players for the competition, while focusing on the league.

A deal for the perennially Lacazette could be completed by next weekend, making the Frenchman’s the Gunners’ second signing this summer.

Arsenal have already recruited Sead Kolasinac on a free from Schalke. The Bosnian is set to replace Nacho Monreal as the first choice left-back.

    He will be a good signing but we still need Lemar a midfielder and a defender

    Offload those flops and deadwoods in our club like Debuchy Mertesacker Ramsey Giroud Sanogo and if possible Chamber and Szczesny and sign world class players. Period!

    ramsey is wengers pet he wont let him leave
    if alexis leaves isigne is the ideal replacement and we need a midfielder like goretzka or jorginho

  4. I’m still a doubting Thomas. “Until I see the scars at Jesus’ side then I will believe He has risen” I.e until I see Lacazette unveiled then I will believe he is already a Gunner. If up to now you don’t know how Wenger and his friends behave whenever the market is open……..!

    Sanchez out too greedy. Giroud out too. Although giroud is one of my favourite players as is cazorla and ramsey. Giroud is underated . you only have to look at his assists and goals record. I dont blame him if he goes as next big international cup is round the corner. Id rather have lacazette, a central defender, mahrez , & lemar for 140million than kylian mbappe for 125 million. 3 player for same price nearly would benefit the mighty gooners. Gooner til i die many thanks. Your opionins please
