Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette was ruled out of the first two league games due to illness.
The 30-year-old then made two substitute appearances, before being left on the bench in the win over Norwich City.
His current deal expires in 2022, but it’s now been made clear he has ‘no intention of renewing’ the contract at the Emirates.
That’s according to Fichajes.net, who say the Gunners are also ‘not very interested’ in offering him an extension.
Arsenal’s idea is to replace the Frenchman with a young attacker, like Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak or Fiorentina star Dušan Vlahović.
Taking these factors into account, the ex-Lyon man’s exit from the Emirates seems to be on the cards, and Lacazette is followed by several clubs, including Atlético Madrid and Sevilla.
While Atlético have 34-year-old Luis Suárez, they may have to bring in an experienced forward sooner rather than later, considering the Uruguayan’s age.
Over at Sevilla, Youssef En-Nesyri leads their attack, but Julen Lopetegui’s side could earn a lot of money from his sale next summer, meaning he would have to be replaced
Therefore, the two La Liga sides ‘will try to close’ Lacazette’s signing on a free transfer next summer, which, according to Fichajes.net, ‘seems like an interesting move to be able to fight against the greats of Europe on a continuous basis’.
