A report in The Mirror claims that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is lining up a move for France international attacker Alexandre Lacazette in a £60m deal as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez who it looks increasingly likely that he will leave this summer.
There are rumours that Sanchez is after £250,000 a week, but the club are ‘only’ offering the Chilean £180,000 a week, so he’s looking to leave this summer, with Juventus standing by with a cut price offer. Mesut Ozil also seems to be stalling on a deal, and with the future of Arsene Wenger also uncertain, we’re sure to be in for an entertaining summer with plenty going on.
The Mirror also claim that Liverpool are keen on signing the Frenchman who has scored 22 goals in 22 games this season. It’s thought Lacazette has a buyout clause worth around £60m, so if Sanchez does go, we’d be in the driving seat for the move.
