Arsenal tipped to keep experienced player on a short-term deal

Arsenal could hand Alexandre Lacazette a new short-term deal after he impressed in this second half of the campaign, according to L’Equipe.

The Frenchman’s current deal expires at the end of this season and there has been no agreement between him and the Gunners over an extension.

He is also free to speak to other clubs now, but there has been no sign that he is doing that currently.

The former Lyon man is focused on helping the Gunners finish this campaign well and the club is also relaxed about his future.

They expect to add some new names to their squad when the transfer window swings open again, but Lacazette has been pivotal to their recent successes and he could stay.

The report claims the Gunners could offer him a one-year extension and the option of another year so that he can continue to play a role in the team next season.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Lacazette has been a great servant to Arsenal and his fine performances for them have made the Gunners one of the hardest clubs to face in this second half of the campaign.

If he leaves, he would leave behind a huge void to be filled at the Emirates, but if he stays and a new striker who can score more regularly joins the club, he risks playing less often.

  1. My word
    Who says he didn’t know where the sticks are.

    Don’t mind he didn’t score score a next gold for Arsenal, once we goes on to win the remaining matches as result of his workman contribution

  2. Seems ideal – he looks motivated and works well with the team, which can ease the transition of whoever we sign to be our main striker. He’s also great for the younger players in general.
    At the same time we wouldn’t be giving out a long contract to an older player, so it’s unlikely his form would drop due to losing that motivation. If he loses form for other reasons (injuries, loss of pace or confidence) we won’t be tied to a difficult to sell player.

  3. I stand this to my mind rather silly overpraising of a non scoring striker who does however word hard. Strikers need more oomph, more power, more aerial ability and more speed. AND MORE GOALS!!!

    Simply being a popular captain, well liked by team mates and respected as a hard worker is NOWHERE NEAR ENOUGH TO EARN A PLACE IN A SIDE WITH REAL AMBITION TO MASSIVELY IMPROVE.

    I pray we have the sense to let Laca leave and not offer him even a short extension. He is not good enough, not even nearly and we need far better and will IMO get someone who is so this summer.

  4. An extension of contract to Laca is welcome. His work rate, ability to hold the ball, ability to draw defenders and most importantly his leadership qualities on and off the pitch as someone to whom the youngsters can look upto is unmatched. The goals will surely start coming, hopefully will start against Palace. Also the transition period during which the new striker is eased into the PL fold or the Arsenal way will be easier and smoother with Laca around. Laca must be given an extension and if we make it to the top 4, Laca has played an important role in achieving that and we should not just ditch him after achieving our target.
