With Jamie Vardy rejecting Arsenal, choosing to sign a new contract with Leicester City and Morata looking like he will be going to Chelsea or staying at Real Madrid, Arsenal are looking like if they do not take drastic steps, they will end yet another transfer window without having signed the much needed striker.
But if you believe reports in the French and English media today, Wenger has taken it upon himself to get Arsenal a striker this summer. The Frenchman will reportedly hold talks with Lacazette in a bid to bring the Lyon striker to Arsenal this summer. Lacazette has been linked with West Ham in the last few weeks but newer reports claim the player prefers a move to a club playing in the Champions League which will work in Arsenal’s favour.
Arsenal will reported offer the France international striker a four years contract worth £95,000 a week and will hope they can get a deal done with Olympic Lyon for £45million. In 172 games, Lacazette has scored 72 goals since he broke into the Lyon first team in 2010.
However, it remains to be seen if Wenger will truly play £45 million for someone like Lacazette. That will be so unwenger like.
