Arsenal will complete the signing of 21-goal hitman by the end of this week – Sky Sports pundit

According to Arsene Wenger, there are not many strikers around at the moment, but a move for Alexandre Lacazette seems to be the one rumour which just won’t go away.s

England and Arsenal star striker Danny Welbeck is still out injured for a few more months yet, and with Arsenal fans increasingly frustrated with Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud, it’s hoped that Lacazette will be Emirates bound very soon. With 21 goals in 34 appearances for the Lyon last season, he’d certainly be a welcome addition to the Arsenal squad.

The latest report from Squawka claim that football pundit Tony Cascarino reckons that a deal is close and the 25- year-old ace will join Arsenal by the end of this week.

“I’ve got a few people in France who really believes that this deal will go through by the end of this week coming, by the next Transfer Window (a TV programme on Sky Sports in the UK) next weekend that deal will be done, I’m sure…”

As with all of these other links, we need to take the reports with a pinch of salt, but this does sounds like Cascarino has some inside knowledge of the situation, so you never know. We are desperately in need of a striker so it would be amazing if this particular rumour is true and Lacazette can join up with his French team mates at Arsenal and help us challenge for our first Premier League title in 12 years.
