Arsenal fans react to Tottenham star's big move, make clear point

Sydney FC vs Arsenal - Pre Season Friendly

Arsenal fans believe Kyle Walker's move from Tottenham to Manchester City shows they have bargain in Alexandre Lacazette.

Kyle Walker is set to move from Tottenham Hotspur to Manchester City, with a fee agreed between the two clubs, BBC Sport report.

The fee is £50 million plus incentives, Tottenham's second highest ever sale after the 2013 departure of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

Money is no object to super rich Manchester City, and a player is worth what the selling club deem them to be.

Yet the high fee has Arsenal fans smiling, believing it proves their £52 million club record fee spent on striker Alexandre Lacazette looks like a bargain.

Lacazette scored 37 goals in all competitions for Lyon last season, and Arsenal have high hopes for him.

He even netted on his pre-season debut yesterday, further raising expectations.

Walker is a proven commodity in the Premier League, and Lacazette has it all to prove, but spending £50 million on a full-back is not as exciting as spending big on a potentially prolific striker.

Spending in modern football is out of control, and it will be proved time and time again by clubs this transfer window, with Swansea's demands of £50 million for Gyfli Sigurdsson another example.
