Arsenal fans may need to start worrying a little over the potential transfer to north London this summer of the Lyon and France international star Alexandre Lacazette, as it appears that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal back room team are not going to have things their own way after all.
Last week it was being reported that our good offer to the French club was the only one on the table, that was good enough for Lyon at least, and that the final decision on whether it would seal the deal was with the player himself. Now there is a report in The Mirror suggesting that there could be a rival bidder in the form of our Premier League rivals Manchester United.
According to the football press in France some representatives from Old Trafford have been in contact with the striker’s people and could be about to hijack the deal. The reason I include Chelsea in all this is that the reason for United’s sudden interest in our target could be the rumours going around that Chelsea may be about to beat United to the signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
Can they all not just leave Arsenal alone and let Wenger get the players we need?
