Olympic Lyon are reluctant to sell Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette, but Skysport claims The Gunners might finally land the key striker target.
The Gunners are heavily linked with the striker and reports claim Wenger is prepared to spend as much as £40m to bring the player to the Emirates.
It appears Wenger now has a fight on his hand as he would have to convince Lyon to sell their prized asset. Lyon manager Bruno Genesio has dismissed reports linking the striker to the Emirates, claiming the 25 year old would be going nowhere this summer.
However, Lyon boss confirmed they rejected a £30m offer for Lacazette last week. But fresh report claims Wenger is ready to meet Lyon’s £40m valuation for their key striker.
The French striker only signed a new four-year contract last year August to remain at Lyon but with Arsenal meeting the £40m valuation the 48 goals star could be on his way to North London before the season starts.
