Arsenal are set to focus its attention on signing Alexandre Lacazette after losing hope of signing Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.
Mbappe has emerged as Arsenal’s top target after a superb breakthrough season at Monaco.
Wenger who happens to be a big admirer of the teenager was keen to make him Arsenal’s next marquee signing and we were even rumored to have made a record breaking £95m bid for the striker after last season.
But the teenager is also attracting interest from Real Madrid and The Daily Mail via The Daily Star claim Arsenal are wary of the Spanish giants interest.
The report claims Arsenal are now scared that the player will not be able to turn down the Spanish giants advances. They believe the lure of playing in the Champions League with Madrid will be too much for Mbappe to turn down, as a result we have lost hope in securing his signature.
The report didn’t stop there, they added that Arsenal will now focus on signing Lacazette from Olympic Lyon.
Wenger wants to sign a striker this summer and is prepared to pay in excess of £50m to bring Lacazette to the Emirates.
Lacazette wants to establish himself at a bigger club, having scored more than 90 goals in his last three seasons in the French league.
Gooners wouldn’t mind whether we get Mbappe or Lacazette as long as either of them prove to be an upgrade to our current options, we are good to go!
