Luka Jovic transfer LATEST Lacazette ‘to snub deal’, Wilshere reaction to retirement talk


Matheus Cunha, Luka Jovic and even Gareth Bale have joined Ollie Watkins and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on Arsenal’s list of possible strike targets.

And Alexandre Lacazette’s future is again in doubt as the Gunners prepare for Monday’s home Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.

Brazil star Cunha has struggled to settle at Spanish champions Atletico Madrid since arriving from Hertha Berlin over the summer.

And Fichajes suggest Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta regards the 22-year-old as the type of powerful presence he wants to eventually replace Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

England’s back-up hitmen Watkins and Calvert-Lewin are more conventional options being mentioned.

But the most bizarre claim, from Defensa Central, is that the Gunners are interested in swapping Lacazette for Real Madrid’s ex-Tottenham superstar Bale.

Finally, Palace boss and Patrick Vieira has distanced himself from Spotify owner Daniel Ek’s proposal to buy Arsenal.

Vieira was supportive of Ek’s takeover attempt, along with ex-Gunners team-mate Thierry Henry.

But he said: “I am in a different position than a couple of months ago. So I’m not going to express myself in the same way than when I was just an ex-Arsenal football player.”
