Transfer News!! Everton Eye Arsenal Striker Giroud As Wenger Smashes Transfer Record For Lacazette (Details) - 4 years ago
Alexandre Lacazette will become Arsenal’s most expensive player, when he signs a five-year deal with the Gunners this week. Arsenal and Lyon have agreed a £44million fee for the 26-year-old, who netted 28 times in Ligue 1 last season. When the move is completed, Lacazette’s transfer will now surpass the the £42.5million spent to land Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in 2013. “To be close to £44million is something unique, and will be without a doubt a record for Arsenal and a record for Lyon absolutely. “We will without a doubt hit a record, it is not a small transfer, £44million for a player who was produced by our club,” Lyon’s president, Jean Michel Aulas, said. Everton will now try to tempt Arsene Wenger with £20million for Olivier Giroud, the player most at risk from his France team-mate’s arrival in World Cup year.
