It seems to me that a little clarity on Arsenal's transfer plans is due.
Especially today with the Riyad Mahrez rumours.
The interest for the Leicester City winger is an old story that I first published in May:
What's happening today? Are they back in love? Not exactly. Let me explain.
Julian Draxler, of Wolfsburg, was wanted by Arsene Wenger for the wing role ahead of Mahrez, an old desire. So it's a possibility that the Draxler deal was a non-starter and so they're going back to Mahrez - but it's definitely not agreed yet.
And, despite all rumours, Alexandre Lacazette, of Lyon, is still not the first option for the striker role, but he is ready to land. Arsenal are working on a secret name, not yet revealed, and the recent trip to Germany of some club members could mean something. Or maybe it was for Draxler? No-one knows yet.
What we know is when and if Arsenal realize that they won't be able to take their first choice, they will take Lacazette. The budget ready for the striker plus the winger is about £100 million.
GOMEZ TO WEST HAM
