Arsenal striker transfer plans hit with major blow

There are quite a few ifs to this particular piece of Arsenal transfer news. If the Lyon and France forward Alexandre Lacazette is the number one transfer target for the Gunners is the main one and after that we do not know if Arsene Wenger is prepared to improve on the offer of around £30 million that the striker’s French club have already turned down.

If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then Arsenal fans could still be disappointed as Lacazette picked up what could turn out to be a transfer scuppering hip injury in the French version of the Community Shield, called the Trophee Des Champions at the weekend.

Arsenal rocked by striker transfer snub!!

He has been the subject of a large number of Arsenal transfer rumours this summer and was certainly one of the strikers that the Arsenal fans were hoping that Arsene Wenger would add to the attacking options of the Gunners for the season ahead.

Plus it was thought that the Lyon and France international star Alexandre Lacazette would be more easily available and probably cheaper than other strikers linked with the club, such as Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani. So the news reported by ESPN today is a real blow.
