The exit of French striker Alexandre Lacazette might have been delayed but it could still happen in the nearest future if the latest development is anything to relate with.

The future of the former Lyon striker was up in the air during the summer transfer window as it was claimed that he would be leaving the club with Atletico Madrid and Juventus as his likely destination but that did not happen as manager Mikel Arteta decided to keep him for the season.

However, Alexandre Lacazette has not been a regular in the Arsenal team as he is mostly used to bench roles. The game against Man City has given the hint that he might not be needed in the Arsenal team with the Spanish boss preferring to use Brazilian international Willian in the centre-forward position knowing that he is a natural winger.

This has raised concerns over the future of Alexandre Lacazette and it is claimed that he might be nearing his exit from the club to have him secure a regular playing time elsewhere.

Meanwhile, the former Man City assistant manager has been accused of being disrespectful to Alexandre Lacazette and not having faith in his ability to lead the team’s attack.
