Four clubs battling for Arsenal star who could leave soon

Alexandre Lacazette is a wanted man as the Frenchman approaches the end of his time at the Emirates.

The attacker is still an important member of the current Arsenal team, but the main reason he is getting more than enough playing time right now is that the Gunners don’t have a better alternative.

But his long-term future is almost certainly out of the Emirates and clubs have been lining up to sign him on a free transfer.

Calciomercato says AC Milan is the latest club showing an interest in his signature, but the Italians have company.

The report says he could also join Marseille, Newcastle or Atletico Madrid.

If he wants to remain in England, he could find a contract offer from Newcastle very attractive.

Just Arsenal Opinion

It is good to hear that the players who kept Arsenal at a mediocre level for some time are leaving.

It doesn’t matter where Lacazette plays next, the most important thing is that the club is moving him on.

The striker has contributed as much as he can to the Gunners and now is the time for a more potent striker to join.

Dusan Vlahovic and Youssef En-Nesyri are two strikers who have been linked with a move to Arsenal.

Either might score more goals at the Emirates than Lacazette has done so far.

    “Battling” is undoubtedly a considerable stretch or we should be able to get one of these supposed suitors to ante up something in the upcoming window, which is highly unlikely

      Why, when they can wait and get him for free…

        I was simply suggesting that if he was a highly-coveted player, which I doubt very much, a club might try to jump the queue by engaging in a preemptive strike come January so that they don’t miss out in the summer…that certainly wasn’t a totally unusual course of action in the past, especially if the player involved had multiple suitors

        1. Atid says:

          If lacazette has decided to leave or Arsenal have decided to not offer him a contract, why is Arteta continuing to play him? Chambers is in the same situation as are Nketiah and Elneny, yet the latter 3 are not being afforded the minutes that Laca is getting.

          Personally, these 4 players would only make my matchday squad if there was no alternative options. For me the team should set up in 4411 with Odegarrd playing just off Aubameyang instead of Lacazette.
          Ramsdale
          Tomiyashu White Gabriel Tierney
          Saka Partey AMN ESR
          Odegarrd
          Abameyang

          Cup Team & Bench:
          Leno
          Cedric Holding Mari Tavares
          Pepe Sambi Patino Martinelli
          Hutchinson
          Balogun

          If Chambers, Elneny, Nketiah and Lacazette are not part of the future, there is no reason to keep them as part of the present. Just like Iliev, Guendozi, Torreira and Mavropanos are as good as gone, the club needs to make the same decision with those 4 too.

          I really hope Arteta is watching Clarke, Ballard and Saliba regularly because they can certainly take the places of Cedric, Holding and Mari next season.

          Of all the loanees I think these 3 have been impressing the most.

          3 other players I would look to cash in on are Xhaka, Leno and Pepe.

    Keep this guy and get rid of Aubameyang, instead. Although, Auba has shown some hardened character, most recently, but he still isn’t good enough.

  3. Wayne says:

    If Arsenal desires to be like the top three teams, then they must be ambitious, ruthless and forward thinking. Both Aubameyang and Lacazette are ageing and should be sold asap. They are not scoring enough goals. Their combined weekly salaries amount to approximately 432m pounds. That’s enough to pay the salaries of a top modern striker, an attacking midfielder, a defensive midfielder and a right back. Arsenal must be ruthless in the January transfer window, by getting rid of dead woods and fringe players, but, also invest in striker like Isak.
