Arsenal are willing to sanction the sale of Alexandre Lacazette this summer, reports AS.
The Gunners have made it clear they intend to fight tooth and nail to keep hold of in-demand forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but the same cannot be said for his strike partner.
It’s claimed manager Mikel Arteta doesn’t regard Lacazette as a key member of his squad, despite the Frenchman scoring nine goals in all competitions this season.
Lacazette, who has two years remaining on his contract at the Emirates, has long been linked with Atletico Madrid and is believed to be open to a move to the Wanda Metropolitano.
‘VAN DE BEEK FUTURE NOT DECIDED’
Donny van de Beek’s agent admits he does not know what the future holds for the Ajax midfielder amid links to Manchester United and Real Madrid.
“What’s going to happen to Donny? Nobody knows at the moment,” agent Guido Albers told Voetbal International. “The interest, that is known, has been there from several clubs for a long time.
“We will see what will come out in the coming weeks. I dare not say anything about it and can not say anything about it, also because some things are confidential. The situation per club will have changed and we have to look closely at that.”
