Arsenal will consider offers for Alexandre Lacazette this summer, following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s decision to remain with the club.

The Athletic report that Arsenal will likely consider attractive offers for Alexandre Lacazette this summer. The club see this as an opportune moment to cash in, as the striker is 29 with two years remaining on his contract.

The decision on whether to sell depended largely on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract. Arsenal certainly didn’t want to lose both this summer, and they may have had to sell the Gabon international instead if he wouldn’t agree a new deal.

But that no longer looks like an issue. The latest reports suggest the deal is done for Aubameyang to stay, with an announcement likely this week. As a result, Arsenal can let Lacazette go without worrying too much about their options up front.

Now, it’s all going to rely on the offers that come in. If Arsenal receive a major bid, they may well cash in to recoup their investment and free up funds for other areas of the pitch. If not, you could still see them holding onto the player a bit longer.
