Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette eyed by Monaco in summer transfer with future in doubt and contract running down

MONACO are considering a summer transfer move for Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette, according to reports.

The 30-year-old's future in North London is in doubt as his contract has little more than a year left to run.

He has also been out of favour under Mikel Arteta recently, with the Frenchman failing to start any of Arsenal's last four games.

And it is believed that has prompted Monaco to take an interest, with the French club keeping an eye on his situation, per The Mirror.

His situation may also be attracting the attention of other clubs around Europe.

Lacazette has failed to live up to his £46.5million price tag with 45 goals for Arsenal since 2017.

Arteta may be keen to give more game time to Eddie Nketiah ahead of the Frenchman moving forward.

The Gunners boss could also seek an attacking addition in the summer to support Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has not been at his best this term.

Arsenal have been linked with Benfica's Tiago Tomas and the Brazilian striker Brenner in recent months.

As for Lacazette, he has had his fair share of chances under Arteta but has not taken his opportunity.


Monaco could appeal to the forward as they are battling for Champions League qualification this season.

It is likely Lacazette will continue to be linked with an exit as long as his contract situation remains up in the air.
