Arsenal Told To Pay £60m After Striker Confirms Move Desire

Arsenal Told To Pay £60m After Striker Confirms Move Desire

Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has expressed his desire to join a new club in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Last month, Lacazette's former Lyon teammate Samuel Umtiti had suggested that "there will come a time" when the France global "could leave to improve".

However, it seems the French global is already itching for a move as he's been quoted as telling reporters that he wants to progress his career by leaving Lyon at the end of the season.

Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette has revealed that he is looking for a move away from Lyon at the end of the season. The French side confirmed that they had rejected a bid of £30m from the Gunners, who went on to sign Lucas Perez instead.

Lacazette would be an ideal replacement, with no such troubled injury history, and would be motivated to be a big success.

"I think that this summer I will need a change of scenery and discover something else, still with the idea of advancing and progressing in terms of football and as a person".

Patrick van Aanholt: Crystal Palace medical for Sunderland defender
Van Aanholt will be Allardyce's second signing since he took charge of Palace as Alan Pardew's replacement last month. Crystal Palace agree a £14m fee with Sunderland for defender Patrick Van Aanholt, according to Sky sources.

The 25-year-old French global has drawn headlines with 18 goals in as many games for the Ligue 1 side this term, and has been linked with a move to various clubs including Arsenal.

"I will continue to work, in the hope that good opportunities will come this summer".

Speaking to French television stationCanal+, the 25-year-old said he believes the time to leave Ligue 1 has almost arrived.

"They have extraterrestrials up front".

"But that ended because it was not consistent with what I wanted, because what I wanted is to play", he added.
