It probably does not come as a surprise to many Arsenal fans, but one of their players is starting to look at leaving the club in the upcoming months.
It’s worth noting that it has nothing to do with the club as a whole, however it seems Alexandre Lacazette has already decided that he no longer wants to remain at the Emirates Stadium.
With his contract reaching its conclusion next summer, he will be available to speak to clubs abroad and sign a deal with them to join in the summer as a free agent, and according to reports that have already started to circulate, it would seem the wheels are already in motion.
He told Telefoot: “Of course, my agents are starting to look to the right and to the left. But not until January, I really want to focus myself on something.
“And then we will see what is on offer, if the challenges are interesting, if there are beautiful projects, how they are counting on me.
“So there are still many questions, I prefer to wait until January to position myself.”
With just seven months left on his current deal, the 30-year-old does not appear to be interested in extending his stay with the Premier League club, although he might wait for a little while and see if he does receive offers from another club in the top flight, with Newcastle United reportedly interested.
Clubs abroad such as Atletico Madrid and AC Milan are all thought to be interested in the 68-goal striker and both will provide a rather attractive proposition if they decide to make an offer for him.
Again, a move could still happen in January if the two clubs can agree to a cut-price fee, although whether that is something that will be entertained remains to be seen and is purely speculation at this present moment.
Indeed, Lacazette has only managed to make four starts in the Premier League under Mikel Arteta this season thus far and has had to enjoy time looking at the offers available on allvideoslots, and with his rank in the pecking order clearly being rather low, it would not be a surprise to see him seek pastures new.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is currently spearheading the attack, although that is hardly a surprise given the 32-year-old’s status as the club’s captain, whilst it would also be impossible not to try and include the young talent of Emile Smith Rowe, 21, Bukayo Saka, 20, and Gabriel Martinelli, 20, in matchday squads at the moment.
The Gunners have not ruled out the possibility of extending the striker’s time at Emirates Stadium, but Lacazette is said to be unhappy about how things have gone and is not impressed by the club’s lack of apparent urgency in sorting things out.
