Good news awaits Arsenal fans in the coming days, with our trading team convinced that Alexandre Lacazette’s move to the Emirates is a sure thing. In fact, the French striker is now just 4/11 to join the Gunners before the window closes.
The 26-year-old enjoyed a stellar campaign for Lyon last term, netting 37 times in 45 games, despite Les Gones enduring a disappointing season.
And with Arsene Wenger having reportedly bid the required £44m to acquire the forward’s services this summer, things seem to be all-but-sorted between club and player.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “At last, it seems Arsene Wenger has finally got his man. That’s what the latest odds are suggesting at least, with punters clearly confident a deal will be finalised in the coming days.”
However, the Lyon native’s impending arrival looks likely to spell the end of Olivier Giroud’s time in North London, with a host of Premier League clubs lining up with offers of first-team football for the former Montpellier ace.
And another thing the Lacazette deal could well impact on is the possible arrival of Kylian Mbappe.
With the arrival of the former now looking even more likely than ever, odds of both Lacazette and Mbappe joining the Gunners this summer have been cut from 10/1 to 8/1.
If the Gunners boss can make good on that 8/1, there’s every chance those ‘Wenger Out’ banners will quickly disappear from the Emirates.
