According to reports from Foot Mercato,, Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a move for Bordeaux striker Gaetan Laborde this summer if they fail to land the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Kylian Mbappe.
The 23-year-old scored 13 goals and made five assists last season and hit his best form in 2017. Laborde was linked with Liverpool but nothing transpired from the speculation.
He spent loan spells with Brest 29 and Clermont Foot after breaking into the first team at Bordeaux but established himself with his parent club last season.
Lacazette is believed to be Arsene Wenger’s primary target, but reports suggest that should Arsenal lose out in signing the Lyon star Laborde would be the man Wenger will move in for.
