Benjamin Mendy is the most expensive member of the most expensive defense ever assembled in world soccer. If the France full back lines up alongside fellow Manchester City signings Ederson and Kyle Walker and previous acquisitions John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi, the club will have a back-five worth nearly 200 million pounds ($261 million).(AP Photo/Claude Paris, File)

FILE - This is a Thursday, May 11, 2017 file photo of Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette celebrates scoring during the second leg semi final soccer match between Olympique Lyon and Ajax in the Stade de Lyon, Decines, France. Upon joining Arsenal, Alexandre Lacazette revealed that he followed the club as a child because of Thierry Henry. If the 26-year-old France striker can score half as many goals for the Gunners as Henry did, the club-record 60 million euros ($68 million) spent on signing him from Lyon will surely be worth it.
