Arsenal are believed to be closing in on the club record signing of Alexandre Lacazette.

You can gauge how special a player is and how special they've been by their involvement on the international scene.

West Ham are keen - but would find it hard to take both Giroud and his wage packets on.

Lacazette has actually emerged as one of Arsene Wenger's main transfer targets this summer as Toolbox attempt to place last period's failure to get approved for the Champions League behind them.

In 2014-15 he was crowned Ligue 1's top scorer with 27 goals in 33 games and also the UNFP Ligue 1 Player of the Year. However, the Lyon boss is saying, right there on the social media platform that the Le Progres claim is purely fake news. Why would anyone believe that he is going to dig in, say no to the player, and say no to the money, when he made the same promises and then caved in 2012?

Alexandre Lacazette may not be heading to Arsenal this summer, but that doesn't mean the Gunners are going to refrain from spending massive amounts of cash.

Where next for Alexis Sanchez?

Former Arsenal midfielder Remi Garde is the man who made Lacazette a first-team regular at Lyon and he remains an admirer. Arsenal need an upgrade not an alternate.

This summer might see a change in the way Arsenal does business, as they have not been known to be the biggest spenders like their Premier League counterparts Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City.

"Alexandre should have left for Atletico, but that could not be done", Aulas said. While I always hoped for the transfer to be completed, history tells us to never be so naive.

The Chile forward has one year to run on his contract and has given no indication he is ready to sign another one, despite Arsenal's desperation to tie him down.

As for the negotiations, there doesn't seem to be a great deal of progress. They are a completely different proposition with and without him which is why he, unlike Mesut Ozil, is unquestionably worth breaking the bank for.
