Arsenal launch £75m bid for attacking duo

Arsenal are ready and willing to spend what it takes to land attacking pair Riyad Mahrez and Alexandre Lacazette, with The Mirror stating that the Gunners will splash £75 million on the duo.

Arsene Wenger has stated that the North London club are ready to spend big if the correct players are available and last season’s Premier League runners-up have already spent big on Granit Xhaka.

The Arsenal fans are urging the club to bring a new centre forward to the Emirates Stadium to provide competition to Olivier Giroud and an approach for Jamie Vardy this summer has proved unsuccessful.

Lacazette has been linked with a move to the Premier League over a number of transfer windows after stunning form in Ligue 1 for Lyon.

Mahrez meanwhile is said to be unsettle with the English champions Leicester and could be angling for a move to another club.

A sizeable fee would be needed if Arsenal were to land the pair, which would take the Gunners’ summer spending to over £100 million.
