It’s no secret that Tottenham are interested in Alexandre Lacazette. But who isn’t?
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Tottenham are linked with surprise move for Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette.
The France international joined Arsenal from Lyon for a fee in the region of 53 million euros in July 2019. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
The forward has banged in 10 goals and provided 3 assists in 27 matches for Arsenal this term on all fronts.
Lacazette has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 3 goals in 16 senior appearances for the France national team.
The forward’s contract at Arsenal is about to expire in 16 months and a number of clubs are said to be monitoring his situation, with Tottenham showing the most concrete interest in an attempt to lure the player to their team.
Jose Mourinho wants to sign a new forward and Lacazette is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The France international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of forward Mourinho wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Alexandre Lacazette is a dynamic forward, who possesses good technical skills and ball control. He would provide a good variety to Tottenham’s attack.
According to the report,” Tottenham are battling Juventus in a surprise deal to prise Alexandre Lacazette away from Arsenal this summer. The Gunners allowed a number of high-profile stars to move on in January as they cleared the deck. The likes of Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Sead Kolasinac were all allowed to move on. However, the exodus will not stop there, with technical direct Edu also looking to offload four more big names. As per the report, Lacazette, David Luiz, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi are all likely to be sold. Of the quartet, Lacazette is likely to generate the most funds. The striker, while having just 16 months left on his deal, boasts a decent goals return for Arsenal. Indeed, since signing from Lyon in a then-club record move from Lyon, Lacazette has 58 goals in 154 games for the club. At £25m, Levy would finally land cover and another credtitable attacking option alongside Harry Kane.”
