The star of Olympique Lyonnais Alexandre Lacazette is getting closer to a transfer to Arsenal. The news was announced by the President of the club, Jean Michel Aulas. Lacazette will cost the Londoners around 50 million euros.
As it is known, Atletico Madrid was also =very close to the attraction of the player, but in the end, Arsene Wenger came out the winner. Last season, Lacazette scored 28 goals in the elite of France.
`Information for 55 million euros plus bonuses in the amount of 12 million euros do not correspond to the truth. The first offer of Arsenal was for the sum of 45 million euros. I think the deal will happen very soon and we will get between 45 and 50 million euros.
`That will be the most expensive transfer in our history, as well as in the history of Arsenal. You know that this club analyzed by partners of top football picks doesn`t usually spend big money on new players.`, said Aulas.
`When would the transfer be finalized? In a day or two.`, added the boss of Lyonnais.
