Arsenal and France international striker Alexandre Lacazette is reportedly set for a shock move out of the Emirates Stadium this month.

According to French media outlet Le10 Sports, the player is planning on forcing a move out of North London before the end of the ongoing transfer market, having failed to start any game since the start of the season.

Lacazette has found himself down the pecking order under Unai Emery and he could be heading out of the manager’s tutelage this week so as to get regular actions at the course the campaign.

Lacazette got off the substitute bench to inspire the Gunners to a 3-1 win over West Ham last Saturday. In his post-match interview with the press, the player called on the former Paris St-German’s manager to start using him at the beginning of matches so as to help the team achieve their mission for the season.

There have been calls from the Gunners fans on Emery to start the player alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the final third of the pitch but the manager hasn’t yield to their demands, claiming he will play both strikers when the time is right.

As for Lacazette, Aubameyang is a good striker and it will be interesting to play with him from the start of every game, though, he admitted he is not pressurizing the manager to doing what he didn’t want.

“I like to be with Auba. He’s a good guy.I’m not asking the coach or telling him, ‘I want to play with Auba’ or something like that.” he said.
