The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern were dancing on the pool tables yesterday when Alexandre Lacazette was confirmed as their latest new signing.
The prolific Lyon striker has finally become the club’s most expensive signing after a £52m bid was expected by the Ligue 1 side, much to the delight of the Gooners propping up our bar.
The fee shatters the previous club record in which the Gunners paid Real Madrid £42.5m for Mesut Ozil in 2013.
Lacazette has completed his medical and is expected to link up with his new teammates by the end of the week and Arsenal supporters are drooling at the possibility of the Frenchman linking up with the aforementioned Ozil.
With just one year to run on his current deal, the German’s future is uncertain. Yet Arsene Wenger has stressed his desire to keep hold of his playmaker, as he looks to mount a title challenge next year.
The Gooners down here at the Transfer Tavern are also praying Ozil remains at The Emirates. We’re here to explain why.
