In a bid to tempting Lyon into selling Alexandre Lacazette, Arsenal, has made a final offer for the forward, just a day after suffering massive embarrassment from them, when they made their opening offer public.
According to reports, the offer of £29.3m by Arsenal for the 25-year-old France international, angered Lyon, prompting them into making the opening offer public, in an attempt to issuing a clear warning that they fell short of £3m in comparison to what West Ham had offered a month before.
Due to his hand been tied, Arsene Wenger , opened up about his desire to signing another “experienced” striker and according to The Telegraph on Saturday, Arsenal made a final offer of £35m to Lyon in the hope that they will allow sell Lacazette to them.
With the recent injury suffered by Danny Welbeck along with Olivier Giroud’s fitness issues, which will cause him to miss the start of the season, Wenger, has his hands tied as he has access to only unproven striker Chuba Akpom. Even as the academy graduate scored the winner in the 2-1 victory over the MLS All-Stars this week, he can only boast of four Premier League appearances, which will be a risky move for Wenger should he play in the first match of the season against Liverpool.
Wenger, also seem to have another option in Theo Walcott, but due to his struggles as the lead striker last season coupled with his form deserting him lately, which also lead to him been snubbed from Roy Hodgson’s England squad he might not make the cut and could even be sold off by Wenger.
