Arsenal and Chelsea fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern like what they are reading in the Express – with the publication suggesting that both London clubs have been given the ‘green light’ in their pursuit of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.
The forward has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, and it is a name that the regulars here in the Transfer Tavern are well aware of – but whether a deal will actually materialise is uncertain.
The 24-year-old striker has only ever plied his trade in France for Lyon, so a move to the Premier League woud undoubtedly be a huge step-up for the Lyon-born forward.
As our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern quips, the Frenchman has proved that he can score goals in Ligue 1, but whether he can replicate that in the top-flight of English football remains to be seen.
Arsenal and Chelsea fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Lacazette at your club next season? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
