Arsenal close in on 31-goal hitman as transfer request to be handed in

Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette is considering handing in a transfer request at Lyon, according to the Independent.

The 24-year-old is a target of a host of top European clubs, with Bayern Munich and PSG joining Arsenal in the race for his signature.

And amid summer interest, the Frenchman is seriously considering forcing a switch away from the French side.

Lacazette, who netted 27 goals in Ligue 1 last season, is valued at £28m by Lyon. © 2017 Frontier Theme
