Arsene Wenger is reportedly prepared to give up on Kylian Mbappe to sign Alexandre Lacazette.
Mbappe has been on the Gunners’ radar as well as Real Madrid.
However, according to the Daily Mail, the north London outfit will accelerate their interest in Lacaztte, with the Gunners “very close” to agreeing a move for the hitman.
Wenger will concede defeat for Mbappe as he fears Real Madrid will win the race for him.
In my own opinion, this reports will come as good news to many Arsenal fans.
Mbappe surely has the talent to be a successful striker at the top level, but for now, the teenager would find it difficult to replicate his Ligue 1 heroics in the Premier league should he make the switch to Arsenal.
Anthony Martial came to Manchester United from Ligue 1 and couldn’t leave up to the hype of his transfer despite his obvious talent.
I would suggest Wenger move swiftly for Lacazette, as the 24year old has proven himself in the Ligue 1 for three consecutive seasons now.
