We have had quite a few ridiculous Arsenal transfer rumours this summer, but today’s report by the Star stretches the imagination just a little too far. They are suggesting that Alexandre Lacazette could be leaving the Gunners in the next few days. They reported….
The Frenchman joined the Gunners last summer after they chased him for a number of years.
And his first season in English football was a steady one, scoring 17 goals in 42 appearances.
Arsene Wenger left at the end of the year, though, and former Paris St-Germain boss Unai Emery has taken over.
And it is possible the 27-year-old could leave the Emirates by Friday, by the end of the European transfer window.
While the English deadine has already passed, on the eve of the first Premier League game, outgoing deals can still go ahead.
They don’t even have a team being linked to him, just a general “he could leave” scenario. This is ‘creative journalism’ at it’s worst!
Admittedly Lacazette is not a starting player at the moment, but even Laca himself just said he needs to improve to fight for his place. And to even think that Arsenal would consider letting him go and we go through the season with just Aubameyang and Welbeck?
I don’t think so!
