KEY POINTS

  • Juventus is reportedly eyeing a winter transfer for Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette
  • Lacazette has failed to impress during his time at the Emirates Stadium
  • Atletico Madrid, Sevilla FC and AC Milan are also linked to Lacazette

Arsenal’s Alexander Lacazette may not be staying with the club by the time the English Premier League season is over.

Italian outlet Calciomercato put out a report claiming that Juventus is closely monitoring the French winger’s situation with Arsenal, hoping they could acquire him at a much lesser price during the winter transfer window.

The 30-year-old only has one year left on his current deal with Arsenal, and it is believed that both sides are coming to terms that Lacazette will leave the club by next summer.

Lacazette joined Arsenal from Olympique Lyonnais in July 2017, with the French side reporting that they received a bid of around €53 million ($62.5 million) plus up to €7 million ($8.3 million) in potential bonuses.

The winger is yet to win any major trophies since joining the Emirates Stadium side and Lacazette recognizes that his window of winning is coming to a close very soon.

Moving to Juventus would put him in a much better position to win titles as Arsenal is going through a very tumultuous period of questionable transfer signings and a youth movement.

As for Juventus, deciding to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United during the summer transfer window gives them all the capital they need and wage room to sign Lacazette.

They received €15 million ($17.7 million), to be paid over a period of five years, from the Premier League side and are in a great position to hook Lacazette away from Arsenal this winter.

Other than Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla FC and AC Milan are also rumored to be in the mix for the French winger

For Arsenal, the season could not start on a more terrible note.

They ate three straight losses from Chelsea, Brentford FC and Chelsea to kick off their campaign before experiencing a win in the form of a 6-0 beatdown of West Bromwich Albion in the Carabao Cup.

Hoping to ride on their momentum, they faced Manchester City away from home in a Premier League match and were dealt a 0-5 loss before finally notching their first win in the Premier League over Norwich City, thanks to captain Pierre-Emmerick Aubameyang.

Arsenal is next set to face Burnley away from home on Saturday, September 18 as they look to continue their winning ways.
