Arsenal To Pay £42m To End Transfer Stalemate Over Spurs & Hammers Target?

Lyon have contacted Arsenal and manager Arsene Wenger asking that if they want to proceed in signing of Alexandre Lacazette, their centre forward. However, if the Gunners want to land their prime target, they must meet the French club's asking price of £42m.
There were reports earlier this week that claimed the Gunners had made contact with the French international's representatives and it was believed Arsenal were set to pay £34m to acquire his services. The problem was this fee was deemed too low by the Ligue 1 club.
According to a report from Mail Online, Lacazette is believed to be happy at Lyon and is in no rush to transfer away from France.
However, with West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid also showing keen interest in bringing the 25-year-old to England to feature in the Premier League, a transfer may well happen.
I'm thinking the French side could allow a bidding war to commence in order to receive the best possible figure by selling Lacazette to the highest bidder.
We believe that the Gunners manger, however, does not want to pay that much for for the Lyon forward and could look elsewhere in the form of Alvaro Morata – although Real Madrid’s asking price for the forward could be just as prohibitive a figure.
Additionally, according to reports from another news outlet, the north London club have also considered reviving their interest in Germany and Wolfsburg attacker Julian Draxler.
The Frenchman’s side will be returning to training this week, as they begin their preparations for the new Premier League scheduled to commence on August 13.
