Premier League outfit Arsenal are embroiled in a three-way battle with West Ham United and Atletico Madrid to sign French strike Alexandre Lacazette, according to The Mirror.
The North London-based club have already held talks with the prolific striker’s representatives and are hopeful that the player will prefer a move to the Gunners, rather than the other interested clubs.
The Arsenal contingency here in the Transfer Tavern have heard the news and it has delighted them, with several of them stating that the Frenchman is exactly what the club needs.
Arsenal will hope to sign the man who netted 23 goals in 43 matches for Lyon last season to soften the blow of missing out on Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, who opted to stay in the Midlands when he signed a four-year contract extension last week.
One Arsenal fan is chatting to the landlord and he thinks that the club should do all they can to secure the signing of Lacazette, stating that he could put the club back in title contention once more.
Arsenal fans, would you welcome this signing? Is he an improvement on Giroud?
