Arsenal still in negotiations to sign France attacking duo – report
Arsenal are still talking to Lyon and Monaco about signing Alexandre Lacazette and Thomas Lemar, according to reports
Arsenal are still in negotiations to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette and AS Monaco forward Thomas Lemar in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the English media.
The Gambling Times is reporting that Arsenal are closing in on a deal to sign Lyon’s Lacazette in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options.
The same article states that Arsenal would have to cough up a club-record £50m fee to sign the 26-year-old centre-forward but the Gunners are confident of completing a deal.
According to the same story, Ligue 1 champions Monaco are demanding in excess of £30m for Lemar, who was a key player in their exciting 2016-17 title-winning campaign.
Arsenal have only signed Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac in the summer transfer window so far despite being linked with a host of players since the season ended.
The Gunners finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term but Wenger still signed a two-year contract extension despite what was ultimately a disappointing campaign.
