According to today’s edition of L’Équipe, Arsenal have no intention of letting up on their pursuit of Alexandre Lacazette, and will bid again if their imminent, second, €40m offer for the player fails.
Alexandre Lacazette has asked Lyon to leave, but OL are standing firm.
Lyon President Jean Michel Aulas had the following to say to the paper:
“Arsenal have not come back and will not come back. Nobody will be leaving Lyon save Rachid Ghezzal. If he has an offer. Which I doubt.”
Alexandre Lacazette is also PSG’s number one target in attack, but Les Parisiens are weary of overpaying for the French striker.
Lyon do not have a preference to sell to Arsenal more than PSG, on the contrary. They do not care because in their mind he is not going anywhere.
It is important to note that West Ham had a €52m offer rejected for the player earlier on doing this summer transfer window.
Arsenal’s initial €35m proposal was also turned down.
