Arsene Wenger has already had his fingers burned once as he targets new Arsenal signings this summer, and for all we know the Leicester City and England star Jamie Vardy is not the only player to snub a move from the Frenchman, so maybe our manager is being a bit more circumspect in his hunt for a new striker.
With ridiculous and over inflated transfer fees seemingly the norm these days when a Premier League club is interested, it would be handy if any prospective transfer targets were to let their wish to sign for Arsenal be known and according to The Mirror this is just what the Lyone and France international forward Alexandre Lacazette has done this week.
The source of the news for this report is the French paper L’Equipe and they reckon that the prolific front man has told his bosses at the French Ligue 1 club that he wants to leave and he does not want his transfer to be a long and drawn out process.
If this is true then it should have Wenger on high alert and hopefully the prof is already in contact with people from Olympique Lyonnais and representatives of the player. Is a transfer bid for Lacazette just around the corner from Arsenal?
