Why Alexandre Lacazette could lead to Arsenal landing another top target
Alexandre Lacazette signed for Arsenal earlier this week for a club record fee.
The now former Lyon striker finally arrived at Arsenal after years of links with the Gunners.
Now he could play a key part in Arsenal landing another key target – Thomas Lemar.
According to French outlet L’Equipe, the pair formed a strong friendship while away on international duty and Lacazette could help Arsenal land their man.
According to the paper, Arsene Wenger believes that the pair would work well together and formed a strong bond while away together.
Arsenal have been linked with Lemar for most of the summer and have reportedly submitted yet another bid for him worth 45m euros.
They have also been linked with Riyad Mahrez. It is not clear if these are seen as Alexis Sanchez replacements or in addition to the Chilean but it seems telling that Wenger is looking at left sided players.
