One of this summer’s most interesting transfer sagas is the potential departure of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.
The 26-year old was going to join compatriot Antoine Griezmann at Atletico Madrid until the club’s transfer ban destroyed the possibility of a move.
Now Lacazette has been mostly linked with Arsenal to join Frenchmen Arsene Wenger and Olivier Giroud. The striker has scored 76 goals in the past three Ligue 1 seasons and is looking to impress national team manager Didier Deschamps in hopes of going to Russia for next summer’s World Cup.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has been speaking a lot recently about his star player’s potential departure. Arsenal Fan TV discusses the gamesmanship going on in the transfer market in the video above, as well as some of the latest rumours regarding some of Arsenal’s current stars.
A potential move for an expensive young Portuguese star has also been rumoured as Arsenal keep an eye on the future while still focusing on the present.
