Arsenal Determined To Land This Top Notch French Star: Can Wenger Pull This Off?

Arsenal have been showing their intent in the summer transfer market to build a strong line-up for the next season by bagging a number of players who can make amends for their unsatisfactory finish at the fifth position last season on the League table. They have already made a good beginning by bringing in one of the highly regarded left backs in the current scenario to their team in the form of Bosnia and Herzegovina international Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from German Bundesliga side, Schalke.

The Gunners are on the lookout for a top class striker who can come in as a replacement for their talismanic forward Alexis Sanchez, who might be parting ways with the London club and has reportedly denied signing a new agreement with them. He has only 12 more months left on his contract, which has prompted immediate action to be taken by the Gunners to get a new striker who will be capable of making an impact as good as the Chilean marksman, and the perfect player who can fit their bill is the French striker Alexandre Lacazette.

The 26-year-old striker has been one of the best players to perform relentlessly for the last few seasons and has been an integral part of the line-up for his club, Lyon. After the recently concluded season, Lacazette, however, had said that he is done with his club and had expressed his desire to move to a bigger club, namely Atletico Madrid, the one for which his national teammate Antoine Griezmann also plays his football.

That deal, though, fell through as the Court of Arbitration for Sport banned the Spanish outfit from dealing in the transfer market in the summer.

This also has reportedly bolstered Arsenal’s chances to get a hand on their desired player for the next season. However, Jean-Michel Aulus, the President of Lyon has said that they will not let their prized possession leave without at least £44 million to be paid for him in the next season. He has also said that they are eyeing the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud to be brought into the side and pair him up front with Lacazette to sharpen the edge of their attack in the next season.

The Gunners manager has been using his French striker in bits and pieces for most of the season, handing him only 11 starts in the season. However, Giroud has been hopeful that in case Sanchez leaves, he might get the chance to play as the main man up front.
