One of the big questions marks surrounding Arsenal these days is the future of Alexandre Lacazette.
Seemingly on his way out of the Gunners at the end of the season when his current contract runs out, the Frenchman has since managed to satisfy everyone at the club, including Mikel Arteta, that keeping him might be a good idea after all.
The 30-year-old has shown to be invaluable ever since he was handed the captain’s armband by the Spaniard back in December, with two assists against Watford at the weekend proof of that once more.
In fact, according to Jeunes Footeux, Lacazette has ‘totally convinced’ Arteta, which is why Arsenal are now mulling over a review of the contract renewal offer they made him back in December.
It’s said this would consist of a ‘more financially interesting’ deal, that would also be for longer, meaning perhaps an extra year or so to offer the France international some stability.
This could ‘hit the mark’, but ‘nothing will be done before the end of the season’, suggesting Arsenal might want to see if Lacazette can keep this form going between now and then before committing to him in the long run.
