Since Alexandre Lacazette’s contract with Arsenal expires next year, that would be enough for many European sides to start watching his situation very carefully.
Now there’s apparently one more reason for clubs to consider his signing. That’s because he’s being offered around, according to claims from the Italian media today.
Outlet Calcio Mercato features a story saying the Frenchman’s agents have been ‘on the move’ to find ‘an alternative’ for him in the summer.
The idea would be a transfer to a club where Lacazette can be a protagonist in a team which will have the ambition to fight for big things.
Calcio Mercato says the clubs he’s been offered to are Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, as all of them are looking for a centre-forward.
The report only has details on the talks with the Old Lady. They confirm that the club would like to sign a new striker in the summer, but there’s no hurry for now.
Despite the strong claims about the agents, Calcio Mercato takes it easier on Lacazette, saying he currently ‘evaluates the chances’ of packing his bags.
Besides the contract issues, as his renewal process goes ‘slow’, he’s also said to be frustrated with few chances given by Mikel Arteta, and would like to try an adventure outside of England.
