It's beginning to look like Wenger has got his finger out and really zoomed right on to one of his main targets, Lacazette.
This he has done once he realised that Mbappe would not have joined in a million years. May be he should have realised that at the beginning and saved us and his time.
The bookies have now slashed the odds subsequent to Lyon president's comments:
“Alexandre should have left for Atletico, but that could not be done,” Aulas said.
“He wants to leave. We will discuss it in the coming weeks. If so, offers will be heard, provided they match the value of the player.
“We have not received any concrete offers for Lacazette up to now but that could happen at any moment.”
As to who might replace Lacazette the Lyon president added: “The case would obviously be the arrival of a player capable of scoring 25 to 30 goals per year. It will be a French international or a player of a very large European club.”
Skybet have now made Arsenal very strong favourites at 4/11 on to sign before the end of the transfer window, he is 11/4 to remain with Lyon.
Dortmund are second favourites behind the Gunners at 12/1, with Liverpool third in the running at 16/1.
