Arsenal eyeing Andre Silva as a Lacazette replacement

Arsenal are stepping up interest in Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva.

Arsenal are reportedly targeting Silva to replace star striker Alexandre Lacazette this summer, says the Daily Star.

Lacazette has scored 59 goals in 157 appearances for the Gunners since joining from Lyon in 2017, but isn't believed to be part of Mikel Arteta's long-term plans.

With Arsenal's other senior striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, having already signed a new deal with the club, Lacazette appears to be on his way out of the Emirates.

Despite scoring a penalty in last weekend's win at Leicester City, the Frenchman is still behind Aubameyang in Arteta's plans, with his contract having 18 months left to run.

Portuguese international Silva has scored 19 goals and registered three assists in the Bundesliga this season, including seven goals in his last five matches.
