Deal close for Arsenal’s top target.
Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette is reportedly close to signing a new contract with Lyon in what could be one of the most decisive moves of the summer.
The French international, also linked with Liverpool this summer, has been one of Europe’s best young strikers in the last couple of years and looked set for an exit from the club in this transfer window.
However, Matt Spiro has now tweeted that it looks like Lacazette will commit his future to Lyon in the next few days after successful talks with the Ligue 1 giants.
