Arsenal want to make French star their second signing – report
Arsenal want to sign Alexandre Lacazette, with Islam Slimani and Romelu Lukaku also on their radar, say reports
Arsenal are keen to make Alexandre Lacazette their second summer signing as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options, according to reports.
The north London club have been linked with a host of players in the summer transfer window but have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka.
Wenger has already signalled his intention to buy a new forward this summer after failing in his bid to bring Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy to The Emirates.
Lacazette has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, and Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli is now reporting that he, Islam Slimani and Romelu Lukaku all remain on Arsenal’s radar this summer.
Lacazette is on Arsenal list along with Slimani, although Lukaku was ahead of them both. Very little movement at the moment with the Euros

Arsenal are on the lookout for reinforcements after the Gunners endured a disappointing trophyless season and ended up second in the Premier League table, 10 points behind champions Leicester.
The Gunners have not won the league since the 2003-04 campaign.
