Ligue 1 giants eyeing move for Arsenal £185,000 a-week star

Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette could be on his way out of the Emirates this summer, with the striker allegedly a target for Monaco.

The Frenchman’s contract at the Emirates does not run out until the end of next term, but Alexandre seems to have fallen out of favour somewhat of late.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal would rather Lacazette did not run down his contract, and Monaco are understood to be one of a number of European sides potentially interested in his services.

Lacazette, who turns 30 in May, signed for Arsenal from Lyon for £52 million in the summer of 2017 and scored 18 goals in his first campaign, but the player has endured an inconsistent few campaigns at the club.

For much of his time in North London, the attacker has had to compete with the Gabon international and club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – who joined the north Londoners in January 2018 from the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund – for a place in the side.

For now, the future remains uncertain for him. Lacazette has often spoken of his love for the Gunners, and manager Mikel Arteta, who has meanwhile reportedly emerged as a possible managerial target for Barcelona, has openly said that the two sides may discuss a contract extension, but the former Les Gones ace may wish to look elsewhere for more minutes.

He has scored 11 times in 29 games for Arsenal across all competitions this term, taking his overall tally for the club to 59 goals in 166 appearances.
