Arsenal Ready For Battle To Sign 30-Goal Hitman
Managers are now making plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Arsenal face a fight to land Alexandre Lacazette….
Arsenal will have to fend off interest from Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid to sign Lyon’s 30-goal striker Alexandre Lacazette this summer, according to the Mirror.
Arsene Wenger appears determined to carry on as Arsenal manager despite another disappointing season and the Frenchman is already working on a huge summer overhaul of his squad.
A new top class striker looks to be on the agenda amid on-going concerns that Alexis Sanchez will be sold after failing to agree terms over a new contract extension.
Lacazette has long been linked with a move to Arsenal and it seems Wenger is ready to renew his interest again this summer after watching the French international plunder 30 goals for Lyon this season.
That’s because the Mirror claim Wenger is ready to launch a formal move to sign the 25-year-old after making Lacazette his number one summer transfer target.
However, we will face some stiff competition as the newspaper says that Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid are also eyeing Lacazette this summer as they look for potential replacements for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Antoine Griezmann.
Both clubs are almost certainly going to be playing Champions League football next season so we may find it difficult to lure Lacazette to the Emirates if we end up missing out on the top four.

Dortmund and Atletico should also be able to compete with Arsenal on a financial level so it may just come down to the players preference and I can’t see him opting to leave Lyon for a club that’s not playing at the very top of European football.
If Sanchez leaves, we desperately need to bring in a world class striker and Lacazette would have been a superb signing as he’s proven once again this season that he’s one of the best finishers in Europe, but it looks like we may face a tough task bringing him to north London.
