Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has revealed what he knows regarding the Alexandre Lacazette transfer saga.

The 26-year-old informed his club before the end of last season that he would be considering a departure this summer.

That has seen Arsene Wenger express his interest in Lacazette with reports from last week suggesting that Lyon and Arsenal were set to hold a meeting over a possible transfer agreement.

However, as the deal stalls, Kaveh Solhekol has revealed that the president of the French club is demanding a heavy sum of £56 million which includes add-ons for the striker.

Lyon are also believed to be interested in a deal for Olivier Giroud but the Gunners are reportedly unwilling to sell.
