West Ham contact Arsenal over availability of forward

West Ham has become interested in a move for Alexandre Lacazette as the Frenchman continues to play without a new contract offer from Arsenal.

He has been Arsenal’s second most senior striker for a long time now and has entered the last year of his current deal.

The Gunners are being cautious in offering contracts to older players and they might prefer to offload him than to give him a new deal.

Todofichajes says the Hammers are interested in a move for him as David Moyes’ side looks for more goals.

The east London club wanted to sign Jesse Lingard from Manchester United, but the report says United wants to keep the attacking midfielder.

West Ham now believes that Lacazette can have an impact similar to what Lingard had when he was with them on loan for the second half of the season.

The report says Arsenal has valued the former Lyon man at 15m euros and West Ham will face competition from Barcelona and Lyon to sign him.

If he leaves, the Gunners might be forced to add another striker to their squad with the likes of Lautaro Martinez linked with a move to the Emirates.

    Unless there is a top level 100% proven striker lined up to replace him then Laca must stay. Same goes for Auba. With a young team and integrating newcomers we need them both for goals.

    The problem now is getting White, Gabriel, and Partey fit ASAP and another good signing in midfield wouldn’t hurt at all as Xhaka is always going to be a liability and Partey’s injury record is becoming a big problem.

      For €15 million you would keep Lacazette every day. What would you get for that money?

    West-Ham have just agreed a deal to sign Nikola Vlasic for 25M from CSKA Moscow,I doubt that they are after Laca too.

    I doubt Laca will go at this late stage, and I would hate to see him leave. Regardless of whether he fits this mythical system or not, he’s one of the few senior players showing passion and leading by example.
    But the way this club is being run and all the wrong decisions being made, that’s the very reason he probably WILL be sold.

  4. Some guy says:

    Nonsense. West Ham just signed a striker, Barca have no interest in Laca and the clincher that this post is 100 percent clickbait rubbish is the reference to L. Martinez in the final paragraph.
