Arsenal have made their intentions of possibly changing things around after extending Arsene Wenger’s contract by breaking bank and signing striker Alexandre Lacazette from French club Lyon for a club record fee of 60 million Euros which is likely to extend depending on his performances for the Gunners. Arsenal said on its website on Wednesday that the 26-year-old Lacazette “has agreed to join us on a long-term contract, for an undisclosed fee.” However, Lyon confirmed the figure of 60 million euros in a statement, with the amount exceeding the estimated 50 million euros that Arsenal had paid to Real Madrid for Mesut Ozil in 2013 which was the club’s then record transfer fee. He has reportedly signed a five-year contract with the London club.
