Arsenal closing in on club record Lacazette signing

Arsenal are believed to be closing in on the club record signing of Alexandre Lacazette.

The Gunners have been looking to bring in Lacazette for a number of years, but it finally seems as though they will get their man. 

Reports from Telefoot in France claim that the striker will complete a €53m (£46m) transfer to Arsenal, signing a five-year contract at the Emirates.

Lyon have claimed that they would not sell Lacazette unless they sign a suitable replacement for the striker who scored 37 goals last season, including 28 in 30 Ligue 1 appearances.

However, during the last week, the French club have signed two new strikers, opening up the possibility of Lacazette’s departure.

Lyon have signed Bertrand Traore from Chelsea, while also completing an €8m deal for Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz.

Lacazettes move to Arsenal could open up the possibility of Alexis Sanchez and/or Olivier Giroud leaving the club. Sanchez has been linked to Manchester City and Bayern Munich, while Giroud has been linked to Everton, West Ham and Marseille.
