I am finding it hard to believe that Arsenal have really made a record-breaking bid for Alexandre Lacazette, never mind that he has actually agreed to join a team in the Europa League, but it seems it is true as it has been reported on Sky Sports as a fact!
They said: Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal’s training ground on Tuesday to have a medical ahead of a move from Lyon, Sky sources understand.
Once the medical is complete, Lacazette is expected to sign a five-year deal at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal have agreed a club-record deal with Lyon which could rise to £52m over the course of his contract.
I honestly thought that this was one of those usual long drawn out affairs that would go on until the last day of the transfer window, but Wenger obviously knows the importance, this time around, of getting his transfer business done early.
This is very unusual for Arsene, and it makes me think that it is more important to placate the fans before he releases all the bad news about the players that are NOT renewing their contracts.
But who will be the first to go?
