Arsenal line up final transfer bid to sign star striker – report

Arsenal are planning a final transfer bid to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon, according to reports

Arsenal are planning a final bid to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Squawka are reporting that the north London side are lining up a fresh transfer bid for the France international as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have already failed in their bid to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester City this summer and Lyon last week confirmed that the French club had turned down an Arsenal offer for Lacazette.

Now, the latest report claims that Arsenal are ready to make another offer for Lacazette, but that the Gunners are not willing to spend more than £33.7m on the striker.

The same story says Arsenal’s first bid for Lacazette was submitted back in June.

Arsenal have been linked with a host of players in the summer transfer window but have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka, striker Takuma Asano and defender Rob Holding.
