Lacazette set for contract talks amid Atletico interest 0

Posted on June 12, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are set to hold talks over a new contract with Alexandre Lacazette amid the interest in his services coming from Atletico Madrid, according to ESPN.

The club still face uncertainty over the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, but they are apparently adamant that they won’t be parting ways with both strikers. The pair are good friends, but both of them are keen to hear and consider Arsenal’s long-term vision under Mikel Arteta before making their respective decisions, especially in the light of the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Almost all players except Mesut Ozil have agreed to take a 12.5% pay cut, with the German still earning his £350,000 per week.

As another summer slowly creeps nearer, transfer rumours, mostly speculation of course, spread around by media outlets across Europe, are gradually overwhelming the screens of football fans. It’s one of the few things the Covid-19 pandemic hasn’t been able to put a stop to. Arsenal are a frequent subject, or rather target, of such stories.

In terms of potential departures, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the name mentioned the most, but the latest report – for the lack of a better (decent) word, suggest Alexandre Lacazette could be on his way out too. The story comes from Lacazette’s homeland of France, from L’Equipe.

There has been plenty of speculation when it comes to the future of Alexadre Lacazette lately. There were reports claiming he was unhappy and that his agent had been sounding out potential suitors, and more recently some insinuations about an alleged clause in his contract which would allow him to break away if the team fails to qualify for the Champions League at the end of this season.

On the physicality of the Premier League:
MA – I have said how condensed the calendar is in December and January, normally when you get to February, you start to suffer and pay the price. Normally after the international break in March teams are fresher again to get back the end of the season. It’s part of the process, it’s why this league is so demanding and so nice to play in as well because you have so many games but physically it’s tough.

Alexandre Lacazette has played down speculations about an agreement between his representatives and Arsenal about his alleged right to leave this summer if the team fails to qualify for the Champions League.

Arsenal are currently playing their third campaign in a row in the Europa League. Having been beaten by eventual winners Atletico Madrid in the semi-final in 2017/18, the Gunners made the next step last season and reached the final, only to fall there to Chelsea. This time they’ll be looking to take the next step again, which would of course, mean to win the trophy and reach the Champions League down that path. It might prove a more realistic road than to aim for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Ozil and Lacazette praise the Arteta effect 0

Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette have both spoken out in praise of Mikel Arteta and the changes his arrival brought into the Arsenal team.

First of all, it should be pointed out that the results still aren’t great. After the sacking of Unai Emery in November, the team spent a month in the hands of Freddie Ljungberg as an interim solution, until Arteta arrived and took the reins on December 22. Since then, Arsenal have played nine games in all competitions, winning three, drawing five and losing one.

Atletico Madrid looking at Lacazette? 0

According to Sky Sports, Atletico Madrid are considering a swoop for Alexandre Lacazette.

The Spanish club have been without the services of Diego Costa for quite a while now, and the former Chelsea striker is set to be out for further two months. His injury has effectively left head coach Diego Simeone with Alvaro Morata as the only option for the position furthest up the pitch, and he plans to counter the problem by dipping into the transfer market this month.

Things haven’t quite gone to plan in the first few months of the campaign for Arsenal, and that much is just kind of obvious. We could spend our time pointing fingers at one another within the squad and determining who is at the root of all the issues, but in reality, it’s a core effort and the club needs to realise that if they are serious about moving forward in a progressive way.
