According to L’Equipe via the Metro is reporting Arsenal have been handed a massive blow in signing Lyon’s striker Alexandre Lacazette.
Arsene Wenger is looking on bolstering his squad ahead of next season and with England international Danny Welbeck out due to a knee injury, he is in desperate need of someone to fill in for him.
Reports making the round suggest Wenger has been impotent in regards to signing a new striker to provide competition for Olivier Giroud up front as many fans feel he isn’t good enough to lead the team to success all by himself.
According to an interview, Jean-Michel Aulas revealed he is not aware of any deal in regards to Lacazette moving out of Lyon.
I’ve met Arsene Wenger quite often during France games (at the Euros) but he has not spoken to me about this (an offer for Lacazette). So I don’t think there is something in it and it seems to that Lacazette wants to play with Lyon in the new stadium.
He wants a Champions League adventure that is far better than the previous one. I think he will stay with us and we are very happy.
