It looks like we’ll have a comletely transformed strike-force next season, with the press going wild with speculation and rumours!
Arsenal are reportedly close to completing the signature of Alexandre Lacazette from Olympique Lyon this summer. The 26-year old was a prime candidate to join Atletico Madrid but after the La Liga outfit lost their transfer ban appeal, things changed. Reports in England and France say the Gunners could complete the deal for Lacazette in the next 48 hours. Le Progress claims the French club president Jean-Michel Aulas has approved of the deal and it could be completed soon.
Another rumour of players joining the club (this time by Calciomercato) is that the Gunners are close to announcing the deal for Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez. The 26-year old Algerian had an underwhelming season at the club last year and seems intent on exiting the Kings Power Stadium this summer. The Gunners wanted him last year but he opted to remain with the Foxes after their fairy tale season.

Arsenal players and the coaching staff have been facing a lot of anger from the supporters over a disappointing campaign.
The club are sixth in the table with a seven-point deficit to Manchester City, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot. As a result, Arsenal are looking set to miss out on the premier European competition for the first time in more than two decades. There have been huge calls for Arsene Wenger to step down at the end of the campaign. The manager has reportedly been offered a two-year contract by Arsenal. His current deal with Arsenal ends in the summer.
Hector Bellerin is the latest Arsenal player to face a huge backlash from fans, as he was booed by a section of Arsenal’s own supporters in the recent game against Crystal Palace. The club suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat against their London rivals. The result put more pressure on the club, who are facing a tough run of games in the end of the campaign. Wenger has recalled that was one of the best players for the club until November.

Arsenal’s battle to win the Premier League title has come slightly off the rails over the past month with back-to-back defeats to Everton and Manchester City. They were even forced to come from three goals down to salvage a point away to Bournemouth to keep themselves in the mix.
The Gunners are following the trend that has dogged them over the past 13 years in their pursuit of securing another top-flight crown. Since last lifting the title in the 2003-04 campaign, Arsene Wenger’s men have hit the self-destruct button several times in the second halves of seasons, including last term, when they lost out to Leicester City.

The 25 year old attacker was originally expected to make a comeback and enter the pitch in January of this New Year but in an interview with Joycasino Arsene Wenger confirmed that the player will take a longer time before returning to the pitch as he suffered a setback.
