Alexandre Lacazette

French striker Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoreline for Arsenal in the Premier League opener against Fulham but that has not put to rest speculations surrounding his future at the Emirates Stadium.

It is claimed that the Gunners are willing to let him leave and have made attempts to swap him for Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey while Italian Serie A outfit Juventus are also reported to be interested in his signature.

Transfer Window Podcast claims the North London outfit are hoping to cash in £37 million from the sale of Alexandre Lacazette to Juventus.

Reports claim that should the former Lyon striker leave the North London club this summer transfer window, he will be replaced by Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard.

However, manager Mike Arteta has hinted that the player is happy at the club and will not push for a move away despite not having enough starting role in the last season.

Odsonne Edouard has been on Arsenal radar for the past months and it is clear they will not waste any opportunity to land him at the Emirates Stadium.

The transfer window is still very busy for the Gunners as confirmed by manager Mikel Arteta who expressed confidence that the club is still very active, hoping to bring in more players before it comes to an end in October.
