Sky reporter reveals worrying status of Lacazette to Arsenal transfer
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.
Lyon president says again Lacazette can go for right price (£46m plus £10m). Also says Arsenal have told him Olivier Giroud is not for sale
