Lyon Close On Bertrand Giving Arsenal Lacazette Hope

“Today, the question of Alexandre leaving is annoying”, he told reporters.After finishing the 2016-17 campaign outside of the top four and coupled with doubts over the futures of important first-team players, Wenger is reportedly ready to revamp his attack ahead of the new season, with Lacazette at the heart of those plans.Lacazette enhanced his reputation as one of the most prolific strikers in European football after scoring 37 goals in all competitions to help Lyon finish fourth in the Ligue 1 table last season. The French worldwide has been at Lyon since 2003 and since making his first team debut in 2010, Lacazette has scored 129 goals in 275 appearances.Lacazette has recently been linked to Arsenal in press reports, but had previously planned a move to Atletico Madrid before the Liga club’s transfer ban was upheld.Arsenal fans: How much do you know about Arsene Wenger’s reign at the club? Arsenal may only be in the Europa League next season but they could provide him with an excellent platform to take his career up a notch.So Manchester United, Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund and now Chelsea have been thrown back into the fray as supposed candidates for Lacazette’s signature, which will not come cheap.The Reds are said to want an attacker who can play both through the middle and down the right hand side – Klopp used Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a similar way during their time together at Dortmund.A possible move for Lacazette only hinges on their failure to land Morata and so, Arsenal remain in the driver’s seat to sign the French striker.
