According to reports from the Sun who cites Spanish publication Marca claims Arsenal are one step ahead in signing Alexandre Lacazette this summer.
Lacazette has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates in the previous transfer window and how reports claim Lacazette is “one step away” from agreeing to join the Gunners this summer.
However, Arsenal will face tough competition as Atletico are interested in the striker who is set to leave Lyon this summer.
But the Spanish newspaper believes that Lacazette was close to a ‘firm commitment’ to sign for Arsene Wenger. Atletico’s interest has changed everything, at least according to Marca.
It’s explained that Jean-Michel Aulas is ready to negotiate and whilst that may be right, Marca’s €35m valuation would make the Lyon president guffaw.
