Taking after the fizzled transfer bargain for Jamie Vardy who has selected to stay at Leicester City, the Gunners are relied upon to proceed with their quest for another striker in spite of the expansion of Japanese forward Takuma Asano.
Alexandre Lacazette has been recognized as the goal scorer Arsene Wenger is seeking after the Frenchman as of late told Canal+ Sport that: “I neither confirm or deny an interest”.
Be that as it may, taking after formal talks between both sides, Arsenal have neglected to take care of Olympique Lyonnais’ demand of a $53 million (£40 million) transfer charge for the striker.
As per the Mirror, Wenger was able to hold talks with the player’s representatives recently but a move will not be sanctioned due to the club’s failure to submit a sufficient offer.
With West Ham likewise intrigued by his services after a late enquiry, the 25-year-old is due to report back to the Centre Tola Vologe camp for pre-season training with Lyon.
Lacazette, whose agreement terminates in June 2019, has scored 48 goals in Ligue 1 in the course of the last two seasons.
Is Lyon asking for too much for the Striker, he is deemed a perfect fit for the position of a Strike partner but is that why he would cost as much as $53 million?
