Report: Strong chance West Ham will sign Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette for absolutely nothing this summer

West Ham are allegedly in the driving seat to sign Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette on a free transfer in the summer.

That’s according to a report from TEAMtalk who claims that the Hammers are readying a ‘multi-year’ offer for the 30-year-old Arsenal forward.

West Ham manager David Moyes will be desperate to add a top-class centre-forward to his ranks at the London Stadium in the summer.

Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will be powerless to prevent Lacazette from leaving the Emirates.

It appears as though the French striker could remain in London beyond the end of his contract with the Gunners though…

West Ham in strong position to sign Arsenal striker Lacazette

TEAMtalk claims that the Hammers are best placed to sign the 30-year-old forward from the Gunners due to the fact that we are willing to offer him more than a one-year deal.

Laca joined Arsenal from Lyon in the summer of 2017 for around £52.6 million (BBC). He has gone on to rack up 71 goals and 36 assists in 197 games for the Gunners (Transfermarkt).

He has six goals and eight assists in 27 games for Arsenal to his name this season (Transfermarkt).

And if his time in north London is set to come to an end, we think he would be a truly sensational addition for West Ham.

The 30-year-old has been described as ‘unplayable’ by the Mirror.

The way in which Lacazette links up play and holds up the ball makes him the perfect addition for West Ham this summer, especially on a free transfer.

He has incredible tight ball control in and around the penalty area and is great at finding his way out of crowded spaces.

The former Lyon ace is an unbelievably gifted technician and would undoubtedly help West Ham take our attacking play to another level entirely.

Sure, he will be 31 in May and doesn’t necessarily fit into the category of player that Moyes usually signs. He’s proven this year that he still has plenty to offer at the highest level, however.

And West Ham signing Lacazette on a free transfer from Arsenal in the summer would be outstanding business from the club.
