Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
According to reports from London Evening Standard, Arsenal are set to add Olivier Giroud to the mix in their prepared new bid for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe or Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette.
A deal for Lacazette looks more likely to happen; whereas Mbappe could command a world record transfer fee and many of the biggest clubs in Premier League as well as Real Madrid, are keeping track of the teenager, LES suggest Arsenal have submitted a £60million bid for Lacazette.
And the report further claim that Arsenal could look set to convince the clubs by offering Giroud in exchange. He picked up more goals from the bench than any other Premier League player in the previous season, but he has since lost his place as a regular starter for the North London club.
Lacazette, on the other hand, scored 37 goals in all competitions last season, a big record for the France international.
