Arsenal are once again ready to place a much-improved offer of £33.5m for Alexandre Lacazette, according to reports from French media.

Lacazette has netted 92 goals in 230 appearances for Lyon since his debut for the Ligue 1 side back in 2010 but the 25-year-old is now being heavily linked with a move to Arsenal.

On Tuesday, Lyon announced that they had rejected a £29m initial bid from the Gunners for the France forward as Arsene Wenger still digging deep into the market for attacking reinforcements.

Considering West Ham had an offer of £33.5m turned down for Lacazette in June, it’s hardly surprising that Arsenal’s lower bid was also rejected by the French side.

However, L’Equipe claim the north Londoners are gearing up to test Lyon’s resolve yet again with a higher offer than the Hammers lodged last month.

Wenger is facing the possibility of having only one fit striker, Chuba Akpom, for his side’s opening fixture in the Premier League against Liverpool.

Supporters are crying out for the Frenchman to bring in support for Olivier Giroud – it remains to be seen if he gets any attacking deals over the line before the summer transfer window closes on August 31.

Lacazette has been inconsistent at times for Lyon, but an explosive end to the season has seen him confirm his status as a top striker.

The physicality of the Premier League wouldn’t be an issue for the Frenchman. But there are a few weaknesses to his game, including his consistency as he can go through a run of games struggling to influence the play.

He can also struggle aerially, but that would not be an issue if Arsenal signs him, as they like to keep the floor on the deck.
