AS Roma linked with shock Alexandre Lacazette move
As the summer transfer window comes closer and closer Roma are being linked with more and more potential transfers.
The latest reports in England suggest that Roma are linked with shock Alexandre Lacazette move.
Arsenal spent 53 million euros to sign the France international from Lyon in the summer of 2017. The 30-year-old has one year left on his current contract which expires in 2022.
In 170 appearances for Arsenal, Lacazette has managed to score 65 goals, and create 28 goals for his teammates.
Alexandre Lacazette has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 3 goals in 16 senior appearances for the France national team.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Roma.
Jose Mourinho wants to sign a new striker and Lacazette is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a firm fan of Arsenal striker and Roma could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The Italian giants are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
Lacazette is a traditional number nine, having all types of finishes in his locker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Mourinho’s side.
According to the report, “Roma are making a move for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette. Corriere della Sera says Tammy Abraham is resisting a move to Roma with Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette now a serious alternative. Roma general manager Tiago Pinto is in the UK for talks with Abraham, but with the Chelsea striker reluctant, Lacazette is now a ‘concrete hypothesis’. Lacazette has one-year remaining on his Gunners contract and could be available to leave in order to fund Mikel Arteta’s own transfer plans – which ironically could include Abraham himself.”

AS Roma will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Lacazette to join the club.
The Gunners are preparing to sell their striker should they receive right offer for him.
Good signing for Roma?
If Lacazette is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Roma.
AS Roma in particular need to sort out a striker for the next season and the 30-year-old could be a solid signing for them. Lacazette has all the skillset required to be a success story at Roma. Therefore, it makes sense for Mourinho to step up his attempts to bring the French striker to Serie A side.
It will be interesting to see where the player ends up this summer.
