According to reports, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to meet the buyout clause of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.
The Telegraph says Arsenal are ready to match the £34million release clause for Lacazette.
The 25-year-old was linked with West Ham but Lyon were able to repel multiple bids from the East End club, who have missed out on a number of targets.
Wenger will meet the €40million (£34.2m) clause that allows the club to enter into negotiations.
He has already met Lacazette while working for French television during Euro 2016.
Wenger wants a deal to be completed before Arsenal head to their pre-season tour to America later this month.
