According to reports, North London club Arsenal are in advanced discussion over the possibility of signing French international striker Alexandre Lacazette for a record transfer fee. But according to the reports, Arsenal have agreed personal terms with the player.
The gunners have now returned to the transfer market hunting for a new striker, after England international striker Jamie Vardy’s decision to turn down Arsenals advances and opted to remain at reign Premier league champions Leicester City.
Arsenal manger Arsene Wenger and officials from Lyon have had talks again about agreeing over a £42 million transfer fee for Alexandre Lacazette, as reported by Canal Sport.
Olympique Lyon reportedly turned down an initial offer from Arsenal after an offer deemed as ‘insufficient’ was proposed last week.
The Lyon striker has scored 48 goals in Ligue 1 over the past two seasons. He is believed to have three more years left on his current contract with the Ligue 1 outfit.
Should the French international striker manage to switch to the Emirate, he might become the most expensive signing in the club’s history, equaling or exceeding Mesut Ozil’s deal in 2013.
