Report – Lacazette transfer-listed and Arsenal has set their asking price

Alexandre Lacazette will enter the last year of his current Arsenal deal in the summer and it seems that the Gunners aren’t prepared to give him a new one.

The Frenchman has been at the club since 2017 and he has played over 150 games for the Gunners.

He is one of the older members of the current team as he clocks 30 in May and faces a summer of uncertainty.

Todofichajes reports that Arsenal is prepared to listen to offers for him as they plan to move on without his services.

Lacazette has always attracted the attention of top European teams and that should see him get inundated with offers when this season ends.

Even if they don’t want to keep him, Arsenal knows that he is a top player and the Gunners are determined to make good money from his sale.

The report says they have set an asking price of 35m euros for his signature.

This fee may be too much in the current transfer market because he has just a year left and the coronavirus pandemic has affected how much most European teams make at the moment.

If the Gunners are serious about letting him leave, then they will have to reduce their asking price or risk keeping him until the end of next season when he would walk away for nothing.

    If indeed Lacazette is traded that would be a great opportunity for ARSENAL team as whole.
    He is aggressive and may have the knack of being a well placed striker to score goals. But that is just that.
    As a player maker and assist not sure at all. Besides is presence and need for respect for him at a old hand, is block chances of growth for the young ones

  2. Declan says:

    Very misleading (clickbait) headline as usual because it’s clear that whilst Arsenal might listen to offers, he hasn’t been transfer listed.

    Agree Dec – I think this one’s a bit iffy. If true though I have mixed feelings. Yes he can be inconsistent and doesnt always fit with the playing style we want, but when he is up for it his attitude is amazing. So I understand the reasoning, but would miss him being around a lot.

    1. PJ-SA says:

      I like Laca but I agree with selling him, we need to start recovering some cash from transfers instead of our usual business of running contracts down.

      I think somewhere around 25mil-30mil Euros would be decent business for all parties.

      I do think about what if someone only offers 20mil max, should we accept or do we let him leave for free in a year?

    2. BIMPET omoola says:

      Arsenal should keep him and extend his contract cos he’ll be there to help auba as well as other team mates.

    3. ozziegunner says:

      The player also needs to accept going to the buying club, otherwise he sees out his contract. .

  4. Thomo says:

    So they’ll sell a 30 year old player but last year we bye willian who is 31 and put him on a 3 year contract and extend David luiz who is older than both of them, loool

  5. Glorious says:

    This is not true. Rumour has it that Just Arsenal just transfer listed our striker

  6. Arsenal2win says:

    Transfer news on justarsenal are 20% true 80% lies. I don’t believe we want him out, but if we do, I am ashame of us.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      “lies” is too strong a term; errors or misinformation are more appropriate.

  7. Dver says:

    William is also a dead wood if lacca should be sold then he too should be out also

  8. The Real Vieira Lynn says:

    The question shouldn’t be should he go, as that’s an unequivocal yes, the real issue at stake is will we properly replace him…it can’t be Eddie, he’s just not good enough…it likely isn’t Balu, as he’s probably going to be plying his trade elsewhere…now of course we can have Auba playing up top, depending on the opponent, but our best bet would be to bring in a younger, pacey prospect, who brings some much-needed size to the mix…whatever we do it can’t be an on the cheap Sanogo-like move…there’s a little known talented kid named Haaland who sure would look nice in an Arsenal kit(sarcasm of course)

    1. Gunner22 says:

      Do not worry mate, Edu will ensure we get Giroud back with a 3 year contract or I bet it could be Tiago Silva. To sweeten the deal how about offering them Saka or Martenelli? With clowns at the helm of affairs, anything is possible.After all we do have good ties with CFC and retirement benefits for their aging players. Ask Chek, Luiz, Willian.
