Insider confirms 26-year-old striker wants transfer amid Arsenal link
Alexandre Lacazette wants to leave Lyon but Arsenal are yet to make an official offer for the striker, says Kaveh Solhekol
There have been no concrete offers to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon despite Arsenal’s interest in the striker, according to Kaveh Solhekol.
The Sky Sports News HQ reporter has taken to Twitter to reveal that Lacazette has told Lyon that he wants to leave the French club this summer.
He also claims that Lyon do not want to keep hold of a player who is not motivated, and that could boost Arsenal’s pursuit of the striker.
Solhekol wrote on Twitter: “Lacazette has told Lyon he wants to leave this summer. Lyon don’t want to keep player who is not motivated. No concrete offers for him yet.”
Lacazette has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal over the last few days after his proposed move to Atletico Madrid was stopped by the Spanish club’s transfer ban.
However, it would appear that the Gunners are yet to make an official offer for Lacazette as Arsene Wenger looks to strengthen his attacking options ahead of next season.
Arsenal have been linked with a host of players this summer but have so far only concluded a deal to sign left-back Sead Kolasinac from Schalke.
The north London side do not have the lure of Champions League football next season after they finished fifth in the Premier League.
