Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has admitted his agents are ‘starting to look around’ but will only decide his future in the January transfer window.
The Frenchman is out of contract with Arsenal in the summer, and so far there has been no indication he will be extending his stay at the Emirates.
That means he will be free to talk to clubs in Europe about a free transfer in the summer, once the January window opens, as part of the Bosman ruling.
The 30-year-old striker has plenty of admirers, with the likes of AC Milan and Sevilla thought to be very keen on him.
There have been numerous reports from Italy and Spain linking both with a potential move, with them keen on the idea if they can get him for free next summer or on the cheap in January.
What happens next is very much up to Arsenal, with manager Mikel Arteta insisting that they are not rushing into a decision.
Lacazette is free to consider his options, though, and that’s something that his agents have seemingly started doing.
“Obviously, my agents are starting to look around a bit,” he told Téléfoot.
“But not before January; I really want to focus on something.
“After that, we’ll see what’s on offer, if the challenges are interesting, if there are good projects, how I’m expected to perform…
“There are still a lot of questions; I prefer to wait until January to really position myself.”
