Reports making the round suggest Arsenal have made an improved bid of £52m bid to sign Lyon star Alexandre Lacazette.
After Arsene Wenger received a massive boost with the Ligue 1 side’s president revealing the striker is determined to leave.
Jean-Michel Aulas says that he is preparing for Lacazette’s exit – but will only let him leave if he can find a replacement.
Aulas said: “Alexandre should have left for Atletico, but that could not be done.
“He wants to leave and we want to keep him, but the decision is not made.
“The case would obviously be the arrival of a player capable of scoring 25 to 30 goals per year.
“It will be a French international or a player of a very large European club.”
It was widely reported on Sunday that a deal for Lacazette has been completed and all that’s remaining is for him to undergo medicals this week.
