Arsenal Fans Are Buzzing as They Close on Club-Record Deal for Alexandre Lacazette

Arsenal Fans Are Buzzing as They Close on Club-Record Deal for Alexandre Lacazette

Arsenal are expected to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in the next few days, with several sources confirming the transfer is edging closer to completion.

The Gunners have been linked to the France international since the end of the season, with Atletico Madrid unable to attract the front man due to their transfer ban being upheld.

That allowed Arsene Wenger to pounce and seemingly broker a deal with the French club that would see Lacazette become the most expensive signing in Arsenal’s history.

The 26-year-old scored an impressive 28 goals in Ligue 1 last season and is widely regarded as one of the best close-range finishers in Europe.

All of which has combined to make a very excited Arsenal fanbase this evening, as shown by the reaction to the transfer on social media:

 

So, Arsenal fans, what do you make of the deal to bring Lacazette to north London?

Does a bid of around £50 million represent good value for a player who is behind Olivier Giroud in the pecking order for the national team?
