Alexandre Lacazette has two-years left on his contract and wants to no Mikel Arteta’s plans…


 

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is reportedly seeking clarity over his future ahead of next season as the club prepares for a return to some sort of normality, ESPN reports.

While the Premier League resumes on June 17th, the lack of matchday revenue continues to hurt the club’s finances given how reliant we are on that revenue stream.

It’s meant that our business in the summer window will most likely consist of loans and free transfers, while any major splashes will have to be supplemented by player sales.

One of the players who could generate a significant amount through a sale is Lacazette with the Frenchman still under contract until 2022.

The 29-year-old’s future is linked to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s situation with the former Dortmund man’s current deal nearing its expiry date.

Messrs Sanllehi and Edu have a decision to make as to whether they cash in our leading goalscorer this summer, or allow him to walk on a free next year.

If they decide the latter, Lacazette could become surplus to requirements and ESPN are reporting that Atletico Madrid remains interested.

The report claims that we could recoup the entirety of the fee we parted with to bring Lacazette to north London in 2017 – finances that we could really do with.

Ever since Aubameyang’s arrival, all four of the managers who’ve had the Gabonese star and Lacazette available to them have struggled to find a place for both players.

They play their best football through the middle and with 4-4-2 is a thing of a past, positioning them anywhere else negatively impacts their capabilities in the team.

We only have space for one of Lacazette and Aubameyang, a harsh reality that was apparent from the day the latter walked through the door.

Showing one of them the exit door will be tough, but tough decisions are what’s required right now.
