Arsenal have reportedly had a bid for Lyon striker, Alexandre Lacazette, rejected.

Arsenal have had a bid for one of their main transfer targets this summer, Lacazette, knocked back by Lyon, according to Sky Sports.

While it’s unclear how large the offer from the Gunners was, it’s claimed that the Ligue 1 club are asking for around £44m plus add-ons taking the final amount up to £60m.

Almost double what Arsenal bid last summer.

David Ornstein from the BBC, a.k.a. the Ornacle, insists that negotiations are ongoing.

story trackerLacazette, who has asked Lyon if he can leave this summer, has two years left on his current deal and while the 26-year-old did have a verbal agreement to join Atletico Madrid, their transfer ban was upheld, making the move far more difficult than originally planned.

The France international scored 37 goals in 45 appearances last season.
