Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking at other options after being turned down by Jamie Vardy earlier this month.
The Gunners triggered Vardy’s release clause, but the England international refused a medical and signed a new deal with the Premier League champions Leicester City.
According to latest reports, Wenger will meet with Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette’s agent this week and will make a formal offer for the French striker.
Lacazette is a target for West Ham United as well, but the Hammers have seen two of their bids rejected for the Lyon star earlier this summer. It is understood that they have now pulled out of the race for his services.
Wenger is looking to challenge for the title next season and he is aware that he will need a top class striker for that.
