As per JeunesFooteux.com, a transfer update has emerged surrounding Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette’s future – and it involves West Ham United.
The Lowdown: West Ham in Lacazette chase?
As the Frenchman’s contract winds down across London, with his current deal set to expire in 2022, there have been murmurs of a possible swoop from West Ham and new recruitment chief Rob Newman.
Which striker should West Ham sign?
90min recently claimed that the Irons have registered an interest in Lacazette amid this saga and it is increasingly expected that he will move on from the Emirates Stadium.
The Latest: West Ham make contact…
As per JeunesFooteux.com, an update has now surfaced as West Ham eye a move for the 30-year-old.
Indeed, they claim that Lacazette certainly will not renew with the Gunners and could even be sold as early as the next transfer window.
As such, West Ham are firmly in contention and have ‘already positioned themselves’ for his signing along with Everton – with both clubs ‘closely following’ the striker’s situation.
They also say the Hammers have already made contact.
The Verdict: Ideal back up?
While the report claims Lacazette will have to lower his wage demands to find a new suitor, he very well could be the Michail Antonio back up manager David Moyes has been waiting for.
He also recently bagged a late leveller to save his current side from a home defeat to Crystal Palace.
