Arsenal are allegedly prepared to sell forward Alexandre Lacazette in this summer’s transfer market, with the French star entering the final year of his current deal.
Manager Mikel Arteta said in February that the Gunners were planning to discuss the 29-year-old star’s contract soon and would ‘see what happens’ from there.
However, according to a report by 90min, Arsenal will consider offloading Alexandre before the start of next campaign, in an attempt to raise funds to reinvest in the squad.
La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid, as well as Serie A pair Inter Milan and Roma, are three clubs said to be interested in the former Lyon striker.
Alexandre has failed to nail down a regular starting place in Mikel’s side this season and is now considering his options.
The Frenchman reportedly wants to be a central figure at a top European outfit and if he is not able to establish himself at Arsenal then he could force a move in the next transfer market.
Lacazette has made 35 appearances across all competitions so far this season, netting 13 goals and providing three assists.
Elsewhere, Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea are reportedly both in the running to land AC Milan attacking midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.
