Arsenal captain Alexandre Lacazette has spoken about his future amid hopes from Arsenal that they can renew the Frenchman’s contract.
The striker’s contract with Arsenal expired at the end of the season and Mikel Arteta spoke last month of his desire to keep the 30-year-old, saying via daily mirror:
“I think with Alex it’s very clear what he brings to the team. He’s shown that constantly since I’ve been here, and what we have to solve is contractual timing, in the best possible way, and when we’re all on the same page.”
The Arsenal captain was talking about his future with Canal + and said: “I talk with a lot of clubs, I am open. I want to play European football”
Then the former Lyon striker went on to talk about his former club and opened the door to a return to France by saying: “I haven’t cut off contact with Lyon since I left. I try to go back to the club once or twice a year. Lyon knows I’m free. We’ll see.”
