Alexandre Lacazette could complete €60m Arsenal transfer this weekend — From France

Anthony Martial

The previous record fee that Arsenal paid was to bring Mesut Ozil in from Real Madrid for a reported £38 with add-ons, so any fee for Lacazette would break the £40m barrier. They've already moved to plan B. That doesn't mean the Gunners are going to move on to another transfer target though. "We're interested. Things haven't advanced".

The 26-year-old was in fine form for Lyon last season, scoring 36 goals and registering four assists across all competitions. However, what is more important, is that Arsenal are locking him down for the long haul.

Striker Alexandre Lacazette will sign a five-year contract with Arsenal after the Gunners have reached a £46million agreement with Lyon.

Arsenal received good news yesterday in that Besiktas have ruled out a transfer move for Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan.

'It's just a question of days' until Lacazette leaves, reports the French newspaper, and he could move to Arsenal 'even this weekend or early next week'.

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.

And he added: "The first offer transmitted by Arsenal was 45m euros".

His arrival could probably end the stay of Frenchman Olivier Giroud's stay at the Emirates Stadium. Wilshere is continuing rehabilitation on his ankle injury which ended his season.

Jean-Michel Aulas spoke twice on Friday about a potential Alexandre Lacazette exit.

The only thing we really know right now is that the Gunners will spend big money this summer. United still seems likely to land Matic and possibly Perisic and Morata, but so far it hasn't been the summer United fans had hoped.
