Arsenal favourites to land French ace as talks commence
Arsenal are favourites to sign Alexander Lacazette, according to SkyBet.
The Gunners have reportedly held talks over a deal that could see Olivier Giroud head in the opposite direction and it has prompted bookmakers to make them the most likely team to land the striker.
Lacazette has been linked with a move to Arsenal for a number of seasons now.
Ateltico looked to be the early favourites to land him but their transfer ban means he can not sign for them until January.
Jeremy Wilson reported in the Telegraph this morning that Arsenal are chasing a triple move for Kylain Mbappe, Thomas Lemar and Lacazette as they look to turn Arsenal into one of Europe’s best clubs.
Lacazette has question marks but his scoring record is superb. He scored 37 times in 45 appearances last season.
With Arsenal looking likely to lose Alexis Sanchez they will be looking to add some goalscorers to replace their top goalscorer.
