Arsenal will sit down with Lyon in the coming days to finalise a transfer for Alexandre Lacazette.
Talks accelerated last following Arsenal’s club-record bid worth £44million.
Lyon president has claimed the club will accept nothing less than their €65m valuation of the striker, which reports claims Arsenal are willing to pay as they are keen on landing the hitman.
And according to French outlet RMC, a meeting has been scheduled for within the next few days between the two clubs.
Lacazette is open to the prospect of signing for Arsenal and is currently away on holiday.
The deal should be completed by the end of this week ahead of Arsenal’s July 3rd trip to Australia for pre-season.
Although, Lyon are insiting on signing a replacement for Lacazette first before letting the striker join Arsenal.
However, that should be sorted very soon with the club already lining up several replacements on their shopping list.
