I know we have heard these reports before about strikers, especially Lacazette in recent transfer windows and nothing has come of them. However, Sky Sports are usually a solid source when it comes to transfers.

European football expert Julian Laurens believes Arsenal won’t make any new signings until they resolve the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, amid rumours of Olympique Lyonnais striker Alexandre Lacazette being high on their wish list this summer.

“He (Lacazette) is the priority, I think nothing can happen without sorting out the Sanchez and Ozil situation, that’s the problem. That’s why I think people at the club are maybe getting a little bit frustrated,” he said to ESPN, reports the Express.

North London clubs have reignited interest in Lyon star Alexandre Lacazette as Arsene Wenger continues his search for reinforcement for his front line.

With Olivier Giroud being constantly linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium and Alexis Sanchez on verge of Arsenal departure, the Gunners boss wants to make sure he adds a quality, big-name signing to his squad.

And according to reports coming from the Telegraph, the Gunners have rekindled their interest in Lyon forward Lacazette. Talks between Arsenal and their French counterparts have already been held and Arsene Wenger is thought to have been informed about the price for a striker he wanted to bring to Arsenal last year.

According to the Metro, French club Lyon have enquired about the availability of Arsenal and France striker Olivier Giroud. This comes as the Gunners have reportedly been in talks with OL over a big money for another France international Alexandre Lacazette.

The report does not suggest that Arsenal’s bid for Lacazette depends on Giroud joining the French club. However, it would be an interesting scenario, as the French club are reported holding out for an initial fee of around £48million, with a possible £10million more in add-ons, which is big money.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal are set to renew their interest in Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette. The paper claims that the Gunners have been in touch with the striker’s current club to hold talks over a potential deal that could cost the north London club close to £60million.

The French international is one of a plethora of strikers seemingly linked with the club on a bi-annual basis. His name is usual in the same category of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain when it came to Arsenal being linked with strikers.

Olympique Lyonnais striker Alexandre Lacazette looked set to snub Arsenal interest for a move to Atletico Madrid this summer, having all but agreed terms on a deal worth around £85m. But the French international could now be back on the Gunners’ radar with the Spanish La Liga side suffering a transfer ban.

As reported in the Evening Standard, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas revealed the deal for Lacazette to arrive at the Vicente Calderon could now be off. “It’s good and bad news. It was, in financial terms, a very significant operation. Of course (the transfer ban) has changed everything. We had given Alex the green light to go to Atletico, the club of his heart,” he said.

Calls for Arsene Wenger’s head appear to be falling on deaf ears and as things stand at this point the Arsenal boss is likely to put pen to paper on a new two-year contract, despite a frustrating closure to the Premier League season.

The Gunners are coming off from a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Selhurst Park with their top-four chances sustaining a fresh blow in a game which saw plenty of first-team stars being slammed for their below-par performances.

With Shkodran Mustafi’s long awaited move to Arsenal hitting a bump in the road as the two clubs appear to be unable to agree on a transfer fee, north London club Arsenal are lining up possible defensive alternatives.

German international Mustafi remains the priority for Arsene Wenger, but the Gunners have already identified two alternatives should a deal for Valencia defender collapse.

According to Sky Sports, Bayern Leverkusen and Fenerbahce defenders Omer Toprak and Simon Kjaer have both been lined up as potential solutions for Arsenal’s defensive woes.

Arsenal could well be running out of time to sign long-term target Alexandre Lacazette from French Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais this summer, with the Telegraph reporting that the 25-year-old has been offered the ‘biggest contract in the club’s history’.

Lacazette was offered a contract by Lyon last summer worth around £3.6M, but the club are lining up the most lucrative deal in an attempt to keep him at the Stade des Lumières. Arsenal are keen to secure his signature but are yet to match his €55M asking price.

Arsenal’s opening game of the new Premier League begins in one week and the Londoners are still not finished in the transfer market. A recent injury suffered by defender Gabriel Paulista is likely to force Arsenal to sign a centre-back, but the Gunners are still in need of a striker.

Last season’s first-choice centre-forward Olivier Giroud is likely to miss the opening against Liverpool as he’s been given a late summer holiday as a result of his Euro 2016 excursions with finalists France. Danny Welbeck, the natural back-up to Giroud, is out for the rest of the year with a knee injury. As a result, Arsenal need a viable third option.
