French striker Alexandre Lacazette has decided that he wants to leave Arsenal once his contract expires next summer.

The 30-year-old arrived in North London in 2017, and he has since bagged 66 goals in 127 appearances for the Gunners.

However, Mikel Arteta's side have suffered a difficult start to the campaign, and they are currently bottom of the Premier League after three games.

Lacazette missed the start of the season due to a positive Covid-19 test, but he returned in their 5-0 loss to Manchester City on Saturday.

He was a second-half sub, but the Frenchman struggled to make an impact.

Arsenal reportedly put Lacazette up for sale earlier on in the summer, and they were rumoured to be wanting around £15million for his services.

West Ham were one of the sides that were said to be interested in his signature, but a deal never materialised.

Lacazette has ten months left on his current deal, and according to football.london, he has no intention to sign a new deal in North London.

This means in January, Lacazette is free to talk with other clubs about a free transfer once his deal at the Emirates expires in June.

The news comes as another blow to the Gunners who parted ways with £46.5million to secure his services from Lyon just under four years ago.

It is unknown if Lacazette will remain in England, if he will head overseas, or back to France.
