Lacazette on transfer to arsenal

Arsenal compete with PSG for top target

Arsenal compete with PSG for top target, also linked with Juventus forward.

Arsenal will have to compete with Paris Saint-Germain for the services of their top target Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Lyon recently revealed that they have turned down a €35m bid from the North London club for their star striker.

However, various reports have suggested that the Gunners are still interested in the French striker and are ready to make an improved offer for him.

Football website Squawka has claimed that Arsenal are ready to increase their original offer to €40m to bring the 25-year-old to Emirates Stadium. But, the Gunners are not ready to offer more than €40m for the striker.

The Gunners are also likely to face competition from PSG for the Lyon striker.

French publication L'Equipe has claimed that Lacazette is the number one priority of the Paris-based club this summer.

Ligue 1 champions have also been linked with a move for Real Madrid striker Jese, but according to the L'Equipe report, they will only move for the Spanish striker if they fail to sign Lacazette.

Arsenal are on the lookout for a proven goal scorer in the transfer market and have already failed in their bid to sign Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

They have also been linked with moves for Gonzalo Higuain and Mauro Icardi this summer.

Meanwhile, Italian publication Gazzetta World has linked Arsenal with Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic.

The North London club are reportedly competing with West Ham United and Watford for the Croatia international.

Mandzukic has been pushed down the pecking order at the Turin club following the big-money arrival of Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus and could leave the Serie A champions in pursuit of first-team football.

He scored 10 goals in 27 Serie A appearances last season. The 30-year-old is valued at €20 million by Old Lady.
