Another day is fast drawing to a close without Arsenal signing a new striker – and their fans are can’t take much more.
The Gunners are generally believed to be in the market for reinforcements in two departments: centre-back and up-front.
And with the signing of Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi on the horizon, that just leaves the attacking role to be filled, with a certain Lyon striker believed to be in the frame.
Arsene Wenger is known to have had a bid for Alexandre Lacazette rejected earlier this summer, with the Ligue 1 club holding out for a mammoth fee, but Gooners can barely control themselves on social media:
Mustafi, Lacazette, Mahrez in that order please Wenger. @Arsenal

Telegraph: Lacazette wants to move to Arsenal but Lyon now want £60m for him

When you're linked with Higuaín, Mahrez & Lacazette but could sign Jonny Evans for £16m & Wilfried Bony for £30m… pic.twitter.com/2MKYfLDsUL

Come on, Arsene! Put these poor people out of their misery sooner rather than later – being an Arsenal fan must be murder during the transfer window?
But what do you think? Would Lacazette really make the difference at the Emirates?
