Crazybola.com – Alexandre Lacazette has decided to leave Arsenal when his contract at the Emirates expires next summer.
The 30-year-old came to North London in 2017, and has since bagged 66 goals in 127 appearances for the Gunners.
However, Mikel Arteta’s side have struggled at the start of the season, and they are now sinking to bottom of the Premier League table after three games.
Lacazette missed the start of the season due to exposure, but he was back in action when Arsenal were humiliated by Manchester City, 5-0, at the weekend. At that time, he played as a substitute in the second half, and struggled to make an impact on the Gunners squad.
Revealed Daily StarArsenal have reportedly thrown the former Lyon star on the market for sale at the start of this summer’s transfer window. They are also reportedly asking for around 15 million Pounds from interested clubs.
West Ham became one of the clubs that were reportedly interested in getting his signature, but nothing ever materialized.
Lacazette is currently under contract for another 10 months at the Emirates, and according to reports football.london, he had no desire to extend his contract at the North London club.
This means, in January 2022, the player is free to talk to other clubs regarding his free transfer, as the deal will expire in June 2022.
This news is certainly another blow for the Gunners, who spent £46.5 million to secure his services from Lyon four years ago.
However, it is not yet known if Lacazette remains in England, whether he will move to another country or return to England.
The player has previously been linked with Barcelona, and Arsenal are happy to sell Aubameyang and Lacazette to the club, provided they are given three Barca players.
Barca did intend to bring in a new striker, after Lionel Messi left Camp Nou. That is why, they were then linked with the transfer of Lacazette.
For a Lacazette, coach Mikel Arteta asked for three players instead. Unmitigated choose Arteta, because he asked Neto, Clement Lenglet and Philippe Coutinho.
