Arsenal are leading the chase to sign Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette according to Football Direct News.

Perennially cash-strapped Ligue 1 side Lyon appear ready to cash-in on the 22 year old French international, who is reticent to sign a new deal with the Stade Gerland side.

Lacazette has been in fine form this term, netting 18 goals in all competitions, and could be a cut-price addition to boost the Gunners attack.

This source suggests Arsenal could pick up Alexandre Lacazette for a fee of £8.3m, which seems a very reasonable fee for a player of obvious potential.

The form displayed by Alexandre Lacazette has led to a call up to Didier Deschamps French national team squad and could lead to a spot on the plane to the 2014 World Cup finals.

Wenger has been overly reliant on Olivier Giroud this term, with the 27 year old looking exhausted of late, this down chiefly to form and fitness concerns over Lukas Podolski and a long term period on the sidelines for England man Theo Walcott.
