Arsenal fall behind Premier League rivals in race to sign top striker

Newcastle United have moved ahead of Arsenal in the race to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, according to the latest Arsenal gossip.

The Gunners have previously been linked with the Frenchman, but news as surfaced that Newcastle have lodged a £19 Million offer for the 24 year old.

Both Arsenal and Newcastle are looking to strengthen up front, and it seems that on this occasion it is Newcastle that have moved first.

That is not to say that the Gunners will not also make a move, but £19 Million may be too much for Arsenal to spend on a player that is not really one of their primary targets. © 2017 Frontier Theme
