Alexandre Lacazette is close to commit to Arsenal for 46 million pounds (52 million euros).
Goal can confirm that Alexandre Lacazette went to London and is close to commit to Arsenal for about 46 million pounds (52 million euros). Arsenal has increased its initial offer and the French international is expected to sign a 5-year contract, with a bonus peak at 6 million pounds (about 6.8 M€).
Giroud targeted by Everton ?
Lacazette should thus beat the record of the transfer the more expensive d’Arsenal, up here that is owned by Mesut Ozil for 50 million euros in 2013. It will also be a sale record for Lyon.
Arsène Wenger had hoped to recruit Kylian Mbappé, also coveted by Real Madrid and PSG, but has managed to attract another star of the League 1 in his nets. The Gunners hope to keep Giroud, but should leave from Lucas Perez, author of one goal in 11 matches in the Premier League last season.
Arsenal is still hoping to recruit Thomas Lemar, even if the latter does not seem ready to force a transfer. Riyad Mahrez is a target for Arsenal this summer.
