An update on Alexandre Lacazette’s Arsenal contract situation has been provided recently.

Lacazette’s Arsenal stint

Alexandre Lacazette would join Arsenal from Lyon back in 2017.

The Frenchman has since featured on 170 occasions for the Gunners, scoring 65 and assisting 28 along the way.

Now though, Arsenal do have a decision to make when it comes to the striker’s future.

Lacazette is still a regular feature under Mikel Arteta and his absence was noticeable in the opening two games of the current campaign, which he has missed because of Covid-19.

However, he is also into the final 12 months of his current contract. This means that Arsenal could lose him for nothing next summer and that foreign clubs could sign a pre-contract agreement with him as early as January 2021.

Of course, the north Londoners could offer him a new deal, but with Lacazette now 30, is that the best idea given their recent track record with poor contract decisions?

And, as mentioned above, an update on the forward’s contract situation has now emerged.

As per ESPN, the former Lyon star has no contract offer to consider from Arsenal despite entering the final year of his existing deal.

It is added that sources have indicated that no discussions are active, with the Gunners instead choosing to focus their financial resources on other areas of the team.

Despite this, Mikel Arteta stated earlier this week he is sure Lacazette will be instrumental to Arsenal’s success:

“He’s fully involved. You give the reasons why he hasn’t played more minutes and he will be back to the form that he can achieve. I am sure that he will be instrumental in our success.”
