Is Alexandre Lacazzette off this Summer?

Several newspapers from England are claiming that Arsenal are contemplating selling star striker Alexandre Lacazzette in the summer. According to the Daily Star, Lacazette could be part of the summer clear out at the Emirates.

Arsenal are starved of funds for transfer and Unai Emery would have to sell some players to be able to free up funds for incoming transfers. Lacazette has been solid for the Gunners this season after initially struggling under Arsene Wenger last season.  His slump towards December last season saw the club stump out a record transfer bid for Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

SANCHEZ TO REMAIN FOR FINAL CONTRACT YEAR

One of the biggest transfer targets for this summer Alexis Sanchez looks set to remain at the Emirates for the forthcoming season, according to reports in England.


He is set to see off his final ten months left at the Emirates before he exits for free next year.

Arsene Wenger insisted that the Chile international would not be allowed to leave the club no matter the amount offered. After back and forth, it seems the player would remain in north London. The Gunners would prefer to lose out financially than sell their prized forward to rivals Manchester City or Chelsea or even to Bayern Munich or Paris St Germain.

PSG’s capture of Neymar ended links to Sanchez and Bayern could not compete in such costly financial deal. Jon Cross of the Mirror reports that Sanchez would stay on as the team fights for the Premier League title this season.

Wenger would also have enough time to plan a top replacement for Sanchez when he leaves next year. If he left this term it would have affected the team’s competitiveness so Wenger opted to lose out financially. Continue reading SANCHEZ TO REMAIN FOR FINAL CONTRACT YEAR

Wright wants Costa

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has suggested that Arsenal sign Chelsea striker Diego Costa.


He said that Alexis Sanchez might be leaving the club during the summer and that Diego Costa might be an ideal replacement for him.

This can be a controversial signing when we know the rivalry that exists between the two London club, but this will not be the first time that there are transfers between both clubs. Gallas and Cech are all players that have moved from Chelsea to Arsenal and Costa might be an interesting signing for the Gunners.

Alexis Sanchez has hinted that he might be leaving the club during the summer and it appears that Bayern Munich is the most interested club at the moment.

Ian Wright said that Alexis Sanchez is an important member of the team and that he needs to be replaced if ever he decides to leave the club during the transfer window. He believes that Diego Costa would be a great replacement and that Wenger should make a move for the player. Continue reading Wright wants Costa
