Ornstein is usually one of the most reliable journalists for Arsenal news and the ongoing negotiations will be a welcome boost for fans of the Gunners.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for the French international for a number of seasons but it seems like this could finally be the summer that a deal happens.
Ornstein says that a first bid has been rejected but that the club are still in talks. It feels like it is only a matter of time before the teams come to an agreement.
Lacazette would appear to be a replacement for Alexis Sanchez who could well leave the club. However, if Arsenal can hold on to the Chilean and add Lacazette to the team then it could be a very good summer.
Arsenal have also been linked with moves for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe and Thomas Lemar.
