Alexandre Lacazette could be on his way out of Arsenal in January with Juventus interested and the Gunners looking to cash in before he leaves for free.

Alexandre Lacazette is out of contract in the summer and, unless, Arsenal sell him in January, the player they paid £47.7m for in 2017, and who is currently worth £25.2m, will walk away for nothing.

Arsenal have no intention of offering the 30-year-old a new deal, seemingly happy to left him exit in order to replace him with a younger model that fits more with the club’s plan for the future.

It’s strange to see Juventus linked with a January move for the Frenchman when they know they can get him for nothing just six months later. Juventus do love a free transfer, picking up four of them in the same summer they signed Aaron Ramsey, for instance. Then again, who doesn’t love a freebie, unless they come from Chelsea, obviously.

Calciomercato report that Juventus are closely monitoring the situation while Fichajes.net claim Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are also doing the same. It should be noted, however, that the Spanish outlet are less than reliable.
