Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger in talks to make 23-goal striker his second summer signing


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set for a meeting with Alexandre Lacazette's representatives according to Mirror.

The Gunners have failed in their attempt to sign Leicester City man Jamie Vardy and have shifted their focus on a number of high profile strikers including Lacazette.

The 25-year-old is not keen on a Premier League move having already rejected offers from Newcastle United, West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur in the last three years.

But sources close to the player confirmed that he would consider a move to the Emirates.

"Lacazette's agent confirmed last week to West Ham that he did not want to move to the Olympic Stadium, and Spurs were told the same," the source told HITC Sport.

The striker has a market transfer value of £25million and is also a target for Paris Saint-Germain.
