REPORTS: Arsenal forward could quit the club when transfer window opens

Arsenal football club were undoubtedly one of the few busy Premier League clubs during the just concluded summer transfer window.

The North London club want to compete with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea for more trophies this season and have added Ben White, Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard to improve their squad.

However, that has not quite worked out so well as the Gunners are currently occupying the 13th position on the Premier League table ahead of their match against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

And coupled with that, Arsenal could now be rocked with reports that experienced striker Alexandre Lacazette is set to leave the club when the transfer window opens.

The 30-year-old France International, who joined Arsenal after departing Ligue 1 side Lyon in 2017 has been an important member of the first-team squad over the previous seasons.

The experienced centre-forward had an impressive 2020/2021 season where he made 43 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal, scoring 17 goals and registering three assists in total.

But then, Alexandre Lacazette has so far failed to break into the Arsenal starting eleven this season, scoring just two goals and having one assist in only four appearances in all competitions.

It is believed that Alexandre Lacazette is disappointed with his lack of regular playing time so far this season and he could be interested in a move away.

And according to reports from The Sun, the experienced forward is wanted by several LaLiga clubs as they look to bolster their squads when the transfer window opens.

The reports further claimed that Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are in a two-horse race to capitalise on his lack of regular game time and sign Alexandre Lacazette from Arsenal next year.

That said, it remains to be seen if the experienced forward will exercise patience and stay at Arsenal or will fancy a move away from the club in order to play regular first-team football.
