Premier League side given hefty valuation for Ligue 1 star
Arsenal must pay a staggering £60million if they want to sign Lyon hotshot Alexandre Lacazette in the summer, according to the Metro.
The Gunners have been interested in the Frenchman for a number of years and he has been in fine form in Ligue 1 this season, scoring 18 goals in 17 games.
With Alexis Sanchez’s future up in the air amid contract uncertainty, the Gunners are keen to strengthen their options up front.
Lacazette is reportedly keen to leave Lyon in the summer, per Sky, but his club are not looking to lose their star on the cheap and have named their price at £60million.

Arsene Wenger’s popularity with fans is decreasing after yet another title bid looks to have failed this season, but he could look to make a splash in the transfer market. Any deal for Lacazette would break the record set by Mesut Ozil’s £42million arrival in 2013.
