Arsenal and Switzerland international midfielder Granit Xhaka has been on social media and has ‘liked’ Alexandre Lacazette’s picture on Instagram, sending the media into a frenzy about a possible move to The Emirates this summer.
The 25-year-old has been in superb form since he joined Lyon, and has scored 119 goals in 261 appearances for the Ligue 1 giant. Lacazette’s dazzling footwork has caught the attention of manager Arsene Wenger who apparently bid for the striker last season, only to be turned down by the Lyon President.
Fancy an Arsenal shirt or jacket?
The French international is in top form once again this season, and has already managed 22 goals in 22 league games, and a report from The Metro claims he could move to England in the summer.
Former Manchester United attacker Memphis Depay uploaded a photograph of the striker celebrating after he bagged Lyon’s 5-0 thumping of Metz on Sunday evening which Xhaka liked.
The report from the news outlet claims that Arsenal will have to pay around £50m for the French international, possibly more than the £42 million paid for Mesut Ozil to Real Madrid back in 2013
