Lacazette makes it clear his “agents are starting to look left and right”

There has been incredible amounts of speculation regarding the future of Arsenal’s top scorer last season, Alexandre Lacazette, and whether he was going to offered a contract extension by the Gunners.

But now it seems obvious that he wll definitely be leaving on a free transfer in the summer, and his agents are already searching far and wide for options, and after seeing his few performaces this season I am sure he will not be short of offers from all over the world.

Here is a video from Telefoot that shows Lacazette telling them his plans in French….

He said: “Of course, my agents are starting to look left and right,”

“But not until January. I really want to focus myself on something.

“And then we will see what is on offer, if the challenges are interesting, if there are beautiful projects, what role a team sees for me…there are still many questions.

“I want to wait until January before I really think about things.”

So with this news, and the fact that Eddie Nketiah is also going to pastures new, it looks like Arsenal’s strikers next season will be Aubameyang, Balogun and maybe Martinelli.

Would that be enough or do you think Arteta will go to market for a top-class replacement?

  1. Of course, but I think his suitors want him for a free transfer in the summer. Even if he leaves in January, I don’t think we’ll sign a new CF

  2. It’s time we move on from Auba and Laccazet, hopefully we sell in to Newcastle for £20mil in January, then we can manage with Martinelli and Flo till end of the season, invest heavily on a prolific striker, one who is fast, good in the air, good at hold up.
    I don’t think Martinelli is ready yet, he can play from the wing or come in as sun atm but not the one to lead the line yet

  3. No need for Laca. He can’t leave anytime.
    Poor goal scoring record.
    Poor touch
    Poor passing ability

    182k a week for such a striker? Hmmm Arsenal.

    No club will give him that much a week.

    1. best player we have to put behind the striker currently, so he is still needed and has played well in that role. I think he has a purpose in this team until the end of the season where we can look for something else, unless Odegaard convinces in that time period, which im not too sure about either.

  4. I firmly believe that all forward thinking Gooners will easily see that neither Laca not Auba will be regulars in our attack very soon now.

    Laca is a near certainty to be elsewhere next season and Auba would also be , were it not that his wages and contract make selling him or even letting him leave for nothing , a near impossibility.
    I would be very pleased to be without them both as soon as a proper replacement can be found.

    I also firmly want MARTINELLI INSTALLED RIGHT NOW AS OUR MAIN STRIKER.

    IT IS LONG OVERDUE, AS I THINK MANY GOONERS WILL AGREE!

  5. This cannot be a surprise can it, a semi-bench player under MA, a few weeks before he can negotiate with other clubs for a free transfer and signing on fee in June? As far as Auba is concerned, no chance of selling him with a salary of around £300k pw until June 2023.

  6. We need him until the summer. I don’t see us getting another striker in January. In summer he’ll have more choices

  7. The thing with Laca is that he’s experienced given that we have the youngest team in the League it’s a valable asset to have.But keeping two ageing strikers in the club with no resell value gives you food for thought….

  8. does anybody know if the lord bentdner is still playing ?. he might just be worth a punt ,you know !.stranger things have happened ,surely ,the best player(according to himself), in the world ,would come back and help us out.sorry guys, tis almost christmas, and, i am beginning to get a bit giddy.
