At a time when it doesn’t look like Arsenal would get the much desired helper for Olivier Giroud, SkySports has given fans a little hope with the news that Arsenal will make an improved offer for Olympic Lyon striker, Alexandre Lacazette.
It is no lie that Arsenal needs reinforcement upfront and after being snubbed by Leicester City striker, Jamie Vardy, they have been linked with numerous strikers most notably – Icardi, Lukaku, Yedder and Higuain who eventually joined Juventus for over $90 million.
Arsenal’s first bid for Lacazette was rejected by the French club because they feel it doesn’t meet their valuation of the player. The player is said to be keen to join Arsenal even though Lyon President doesn’t believe Arsenal will come back with an improved offer.
Lacazette, who has spent his whole professional career at Lyon has 48 league goals over the past two seasons, and he signed a new four-year contract to remain at Lyon only last August.
This story has been dragging for a while and how this ends remain to be seen but you can be sure we’ll get you covered on that.
