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.
Arsenal are reportedly set to complete two major transfer this week, with a budget of £87m.
The Gunners have commenced the move to complete the signings of Lyon striker, Alexandre Lacazette, and Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez this week.
Lacazette, who found the net 37 times in 45 appearances last season and has been linked with the North London club since last summer, is allegedly going to set Arsenal back €60m (£52m), while Mahrez’s worth is estimated at £35m.
Lacazette is thought to be signing a five-year deal after Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas revealed that an agreement had been reached while countering rumors that Olivier Giroud will be involved in a swap deal with the 26-year-old.
It’s heavily rumoured that the France international’s medical has been scheduled to hold on Tuesday or Wednesday this week with an announcement to follow.
Mahrez, on the other hand, has been given permission to join Arsenal this summer, with the BBC’s Dale O’Donnell claiming that a deal will come through this week.
