Transfer Focus: Arsenal set price to finalise Lacazette deal

Kylian Mbappe has admitted he is sorting through transfer offers with his departure from Monaco looking more imminent with each passing day.

Jurgen Klopp has not been shy about his desire to strengthen Liverpool's attacking line ahead of the upcoming season.

Mbappe scored 26 goals in all competitions and has become part of the France squad, starting the 3-2 victory over England on Tuesday evening. "First and foremost, Mbappe has been a phenomenal revelation this season at such a young age". He is scoring so many goals and every week, it's in your face!

There is also the promise of plenty more to come, be that at Monaco or at one of those on a growing list of suitors - with the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal and Manchester United already in the hunt. I feel the same about Lacazette.

Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe has insisted that winning the Champions League will mean more to him that any individual accolades. "I'm under contract, I'm not free".

Lacazette was all set to make a move over to Spain this summer, and sign for Atletico Madrid, with a deal firmly in place.

"The Champions League is a dream, a competition that everyone wants to win and that only a minority can win - the most important are the titles", Mbappe said, as quoted by the Mirror.

Both Arsene Wenger and Ivan Gazidis have already been out in France this summer on business, with speculation hotting up that meetings had taken place with both Mbappe's and Lacazette's representatives.

The Gunners were said to have had a bid rejected for Mbappe by Monaco earlier this month, while Lacazette is reportedly a long-term target of the north London side.
